Professional Facilitator for Mental Health Support Groups
Nature and Scope:
Thanks to funding from Alberta Health, the Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) is able to provide low-cost support groups throughout the year for people both directly and indirectly affected by eating disorders. At this time, EDSNA is looking for more professionals to join as contracted facilitators to help us offer these support groups for clients with eating disorders.
Support groups are non-clinical. Participants can expect to receive information, coping strategies, and peer support from participating in such groups. EDSNA aims to create validating group experience, rooted in the belief that everyone has the wisdom to determine the best route for themselves to recovery. Groups are a place of mutual respect, open communication and safety; a place where the participant is surrounded by people who ‘get it’ and the facilitator plays an important role but is not the only teacher in the room. EDSNA does not require a diagnosis or referral to attend support groups. At this time, all support groups are 18+.
Please note: EDSNA provides professionally facilitated support groups - not group therapy.
