A weekend surrounded by hundreds of sensitive, caring, and open-minded therapists is inevitably enriching. Two days spent talking about transforming lives and supporting others on the path to recovery was inspiring. I truly felt kindness and warmth from every person I talked to over the weekend. I deepened connections with colleagues and formed personal and professional bonds with many kindred spirits. I will certainly be back to the Eating Recovery Foundation annual conference next year and I hope that you consider joining us, too.
