Food Addiction Recovery (FAR) - April 6-11, 2015

Do you find that most people just don’t get it? They don’t know what it’s like to eat past the full point because you can’t stop (even though your head screams for you to!). They don’t know what it’s like to drive at 2 a.m. just to buy a certain binge food. They don’t understand why you hide food or eat in secret. The fact is, you might not understand it yourself.  At H3, we understand the complexity of food addiction and compulsive eating. Join us for our FAR workshop, led by H3’s Director of Behavioral Health and recovering food addict, Lisette Cifaldi, MSW, LMSW, where you’ll learn what food addiction is, how to reconnect with food, strategies and tools for managing it—and much more!  (Limited to sixteen participants.)

Click here to view a sample schedule.  6-day workshops run alongside our LIVE Well and LOSE Well programs. Additional fees apply. Workshop fee includes journal, magnet and a copy of Eat the Moment.

Living with Loss Workshop - May 11th-16th

Usually when we think about loss or grief, we think about the loss of a precious loved one. However, there are many kinds of losses in this life including:

  • Coping with chronic illness or ongoing health challenges
  • Transitioning to a new phase of life due to divorce, empty nest, retirement, unemployment, and even simply adjusting to growing older.
  • Relocation and moving away from friends, loved ones
  • Becoming a caregiver to a previously healthy partner
Join Dr. Michele Reiss for an inspiring series of workshops that allow us to recognize and cope with any losses in our lives while continuing to grow, to take care of ourselves and ultimately live well.

The workshop’s price includes all five small-group sessions with Dr. Reiss as well as a signed copy of her book, Lessons In Loss and Living, and a personal journal for your own reflections. Total participants limited to 16. Workshop fees are in addition to the weekly LIVE and LOSE Well programs.  Click here to learn more.

Michele Reiss, PHD, RN, CS is a world-renowned expert on the psychological effects of grief. She was publicly recognized as the psychotherapist working with Dr. Randy Pausch, a CMU professor diagnosed with pancreatic cancer who received much media attention due to the enthusiastic optimism he demonstrated in the face of a terminal illness. Dr. Pausch's lecture and television appearances have hopefully served to inspire others to live fully and well in spite of significant adversity. Dr. Reiss has written a book, entitled Lessons in Loss and Living, based on her years of work with those facing serious illness or acute grief.
