We need your input!
We need your help. Each time we launch the Caregivers United program, we want to get a sense of what your top struggles are to continue to ensure this program is relevant and customized to your unique needs.
Parents & Caregivers: What are the top 2 questions/topics you have as a parent/caregiver about caring for your loved one with an eating disorder? What do you struggle with the most that we absolutely NEED to answer in this program?
Those that have or had an ED: What do you wish your parent(s)/partner/family knew or would have known about supporting you? Was there anything helpful they did to make the journey easier for you?
What Our Past Clients & Colleagues Have to Say About Jana & Britney
In contrast, during the Caregivers United program, I experienced compassion and acceptance, and the expectation that I could play a vital role in my now adult daughter’s recovery process.
While I am grateful that research has broadened and deepened professionals’ understanding of eating disorders, I believe that if all parents and partners of loved ones with eating disorders started out with the type of education, support, and skills offered by Caregivers United, their family members would have much better outcomes. I am so grateful for the experience of this group program.”
Caregivers United has given us a better understanding of what an eating disorder is and what it isn't - that it is more about the emotions and less about what food is being eaten or not eaten. Learning about emotion coaching in the program has been super helpful - I was aware of the need to talk about feelings but did not realize that I have such a big role to play there and how important it is for us to learn this skill.
I appreciated the group sessions and the convenience of having it on Zoom. Being able to see Jana and Britney’s faces live really made the material come to life and I liked that they were in a room together making it feel less like a typical Zoom session.”
I highly recommend the Caregivers United.”
We partner with the dieticians at Health Stand Nutrition for all of our Eating Disorder client families. Jana Spindler and Britney Lentz have gone above and beyond the regular training as dieticians to immerse themselves in the emotional world of eating disorders. They are both trained in Emotional Focussed Family Therapy and use it extensively in their work with our families. Jana has taken the step of completing her Masters in Counselling to add an even deeper level to her work with girls and parents with an Eating Disorder in the family.
This group program will be invaluable for parents who are navigating an eating disorder with their child. You will learn and be challenged to question what you might have understood about eating disorders, and you will be given tools to lean into the emotional world of your child to help them step out of the world of eating disorders.”
