The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp) has released the 2016 program line-up for its 30th Annual Symposium, featuring three key sessions in Spanish only that address the latest in eating disorder treatment, causes and science. The 2016 iaedp Symposium will take place over a five-day period, Feb.17 – 21 at the Omni on Amelia Island, Florida and will feature over 40 presentations and workshops.    

“Many of our international members prefer the Spanish presentations, and other members are bilingual to better serve some of their patients,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director of The iaedp Foundation. “Last year’s Spanish-only presentations at the Symposium were a big hit among our members, so we decided to continue the series in 2016.

“The Spanish language webinars we sponsor are well attended, and the Spanish version of our Eating Disorders Review Online Journal is very popular. This has become important for our overall program, allowing us to better serve our members,” said Harken.

The Spanish-only sessions at the iaedp 2016 Symposium are:

On Thursday, February 18, 2016, two Spanish-only sessions are scheduled.

This workshop will take an alternative approach for the treatment of behavioral disorders using Alimentaria TCA-Therapy Acceptance and Commitment-ACT.
