Each year, the iaedp™ Symposium program is created by professionals who work in therapeutic settings with patients. Their objective is to provide an exciting, quality program.
“As the industry evolves in light of current events, there has never been a more important time to come together, share information and continue dialogue,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at iaedp™. “We’d like to invite our members to be a part of the process. To find out more about participation, additional information is available online.”
The iaedp™ Foundation is pursuing abstracts in both English and Spanish on inventive and inclusive treatment modalities for the many phases of the journey for those with eating disorders -- from denial and resistance to treatment and ultimately recovery. The group also requests treatment providers from all disciplines to convert their latest or ongoing research and treatment updates into meaningful eating disorder treatment protocols across populations.
Many of the professionals who submit proposals for the iaedp™ Symposium include experiential or interactive components in their presentations.
About the iaedp™ Foundation: Since 1985, the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals has provided education and training standards to an international and multidisciplinary group of various healthcare treatment providers and helping professions.
