Group Therapy?

I've been thinking that group therapy might be really helpful to both myself and others. Although where I live there is no such thing as an eating disorder group treatment. So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in maybe starting our own virtual group therapy support session? Like, maybe once or twice a week we could all meet up on tinychat or something and talk about what we've done to improve our recovery, remind each other to stay strong, provide support, and all that? Anyone interested? ^_^

I think that would be a good idea.

Group therapy is a FABULOUS technique. I say go for it! Talking it out with others who know the same struggle is very effecient and helpful, you will see. Let us know when you get this started! I think alot of users could benefit and be held accountable for loving their body :)

I believe that this is a great idea, just make sure you or someone else is farther down the road, and educated on what to say that is beneficial and what not to say (due to harming others). We discussed something like this in the Austin Foundation for Eating Disorders and they have not started anything due to not having a professional to lead it. Support is very beneficial but be careful =)

I think that would be a great idea! :) I know that individual therapy can be helpful, but, being in a group is a totally different and enlightening experience. You get to talk with people who understand you and support your decision to recover, which really makes me feel great because I know that I am not alone in this battle against my eating disorder.

So, lets do it! :)
