Parent Up Pittsburgh: April

Join us at 6:00 PM on Zoom on April 19, 2022 for "Understanding Eating Disorders" presented by Kristin Burmeister, MSSA, LSW from The Emily Program.

Eating disorders are becoming increasingly better understood by our society. However, many are not fully aware of the prevalence, seriousness, the range of individuals affected by this illness. The purpose of this workshop is to identify causes, signs, effects, and treatment options for eating disorders, from the perspective of individuals who are struggling as well as their loved ones and treatment providers.

Objectives: Identify differences between disorder eating and eating disorders Identify warning signs of eating disorders and different eating disorder behaviors Learn about the etiology of eating disorders Learn about eating disorder treatment options

About Parent Up Pittsburgh: Parenting is tough. It doesn’t get easier as children get older; every age presents a new challenge that we have to “level up” to meet. Parents are constantly learning and gaining new tools to better protect, teach, and guide their children. That’s why we created Parent Up. We want to provide parents of tweens and teens a safe space to ask questions, to learn, and to network with other parents going through the same thing. Parent Up: An Empowering Parenting Series is back this September. Join us throughout the year as we spotlight a new topic and host regional experts. Each session will be a 60-minute workshop to build knowledge and strengthen parenting skills.
