2022 ANZAED Autumn Workshop Series
Welcome to the ANZAED Autumn Workshop Series for 2022!
We are thrilled to bring you 11 interactive workshops over 2 days to address the theme: A deep dive into eating disorder treatment – beyond the core protocols.
We look forward to welcoming researchers and clinicians from across Australia and internationally to explore the “how’s” and the “why’s” of eating disorder treatment and research.
We hope you can join us on the Sunshine Coast on 18 March and 19 March for what promises to be a relaxing and reinvigorating Autumn Workshop Series.
