Barayn Ginyaang. Welcome to the Indigenous Eating Disorder Research and Clinical Development Special Interest Group. This is a safe, non-discriminatory communication and support forum for all ANZEAD members who work with or plan to conduct research with Indigenous peoples at risk of or living with disordered eating and eating disorders.
Through active discussions, presentations and resource sharing group members will gain awareness and knowledge about Indigenous people’s needs, wants, expectations and experiences of eating disorders, existing treatments, and factors contributing to successful recovery. Members will also be invited to participate in advocacy activities to contribute towards service equity and guided critical self-reflection exercises (led by Chair and Worimi Woman Dr. Liz Dale) to strengthen cultural awareness and competencies.
This group is underpinned by Indigenous cultural principles; reciprocity, respect and relationship. As such group members will be expected to:
Attend and participate in group meetings
Maintain confidentiality for shared research ideas, projects and personal information
Communicate openly and respectfully
Ensure comments and responses are not racist or stereotyping
Avoid using oppressive language and acronyms
Respect cultural differences in opinion, perspective and knowledges
Be open and willing to exploring new ways on knowing, being and doing
Expect personal and professional growth!
