College provides many opportunities and experiences for students including increased independence, social exposure and personal development. However, for those in recovery from an eating disorder, the pressures associated with student life can cause significant challenges along their journey.

In this webinar, Samantha Orbke, LPC-MHSP, Team Leader and Alumni Representative at The Renfrew Center of Nashville, will discuss the specific stressors associated with college including academics, social anxiety, diet culture, financial concerns, as well as the overall impact of COVID-19. Common stress responses such as avoidance and emotion-driven behaviors (EDBs) will be addressed, and the immediate and long-term impacts of these reactions will be explored. Attendees will be provided with concrete tips for self-care to prevent relapse—highlighting nutrition, emotions and community connection.
