The 34th annual iaedp™ (International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals) Symposium is just weeks away, and this year’s event continues the Symposium’s reputation for presenting the latest in new treatments and research concerning eating disorders. The conference takes place March 26 - 29 at the Omni at ChampionsGate in Orlando and showcases keynote speakers and workshops, the Exhibit Hall with continuous presentations and networking events and the ever-popular Core Courses needed for certification.
The winners of the iaedp™ “Imagine Me Beyond What You See” Body Image Art Competition also will be revealed with the five finalist entries spotlighted and the winner announced during the Symposium. This one-of-a-kind annual art competition is an awareness-through-art campaign.
“There is no other opportunity in the field of eating disorders that presents the leading authorities from around the world in research and treatment of eating disorders to generate greater understanding among healthcare professionals,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at the iaedp™ Foundation. “At the iaedp™ Symposium, professionals in the field are able to experience the diversity of information and research in one place,” added Harken.
The hundreds of attendees from around the globe will experience four days of training sessions and instructive presentations. Highlights of the more than 70-offered sessions include: family involvement in eating disorders, the use of brain imagery, Spanish-only presentations, significance of therapeutic support, gender and body image, managed exercise and eating disorders and insights into a range of eating disorder treatments, among many other topics of research.
Due to its extreme popularity, iaedp™ will once again offer its Core Courses onsite at the 2020 Symposium. With these courses, professionals who are new to the field or who do not specialize in eating disorders can receive a first-hand, comprehensive introduction to eating disorder treatment.
Registration information can be found at iaedp.com. Also available at registration is the iaedp™ Symposium mobile app that assists attendees to plan and participate in Symposium activities.
