Here at the White Picket Fence Counseling Center we are constantly looking to improve our work, learn from leaders in our field and keep up on the latest developments in therapeutic treatments. I've just returned from the Eating Recovery Center in Denver, while Liz, Tara and I went to Hyde Park Counseling Center in the Tampa area a few months ago. Last month was the conference of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP), where we heard presentations by leading professionals from all over the country.
While I was in Denver, I explored the area by staying a couple of extra days and doing some hiking with my nephew and his family. Though I hike only now and then, I managed to keep up with him fairly well (of course he did have a child strapped to his back so that levelled the playing field a bit)! It was a wonderful way to enjoy some self-care and nourish my spirit. Today's feature article explores how to navigate the hype and pressure and determine your own definition of health.
