Registration is required. This group is FREE with a referral from Riverwalk Wellness Centres or Addiction Services for York Region (ASYR). All inquiries are welcome - please email art@edoyr.com to inquire about registration.

This group will empower participants to use art activities as a way of addressing issues surrounding body image and disordered eating. Artistic activities can not only function as positive coping strategies in and of themselves, but they can also be used to directly address and challenge negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviours associated with body image issues and disordered eating.

This group will be facilitated by Michelle Scott, OT Reg. (Ont). For more information about Occupational Therapy visit this link. http://www.edoyr.com/otherapy/

Artistic experience and/or perceived artistic ability are not a requirement. This group will be a safe space for people to explore art as a medium of expression and healing.

Registration for this group will involve taking part in a short phone interview prior to the group beginning in order to identify goals and challenges.
