Registration for Virtual ICED 2020 is now open! Despite having to cancel our in-person gathering that was to take place in Sydney, Australia this June, AED and ANZAED encourage you to sign up for this year’s conference and enjoy some of the same elements as you would have in Sydney. We are confident that Virtual ICED 2020 which will be held from Thursday 11 June to Tuesday 30 June, will lift your spirits and challenge your professional growth as we continue to provide resources that can be applied to your everyday work. Delegates would get access to recordings of every single session and these recordings will be available until December 2020. AED and ANZAED invite you to tune in virtually to ICED 2020 and enjoy the same aspects of past conferences from an online platform. Virtual ICED 2020 is your ticket to get informed on emerging eating disorder research, treatment, and best practices. Here are some of the things you can look forward to:
- Keynote Address delivered by Janet Treasure, PhD, FAED titled, “Courting Debates and Narrowing the Divides in the Eating Disorders Field”, where she will speak on the contribution of the last 40 years to eating disorders and the use of evidence-based practice in eating disorders treatment.
- Plenary Sessions from Experts and Leaders on topics that will help attendees learn about transdiagnostic neurobiological approaches to research and implications for treatment, the influences on food choice and eating behavior, the spectrum of male eating disorders, and the current state of the evidence base in eating disorder treatment.
- Educational Sessions featuring practical professional application on a variety of topics.
- Workshops – some which will be presented live! – include “Bridging the Research-Practice Gap with Underserved Populations”, “Social Justice Informed Practice: Demonstrating the Evidence, Discussing Ways to Move Forward” and “Maudsley Family Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa in the 21st Century: Integrating Neurobiological Research and Theoretical Developments in Systemic Family Therapy into Clinical Practice”.
- SIG Panels include: “Translating Research into Public Policy: Multi-disciplinary Case studies Focused on Body Image and Eating Disorder Prevention”.
- Papers and Posters will be grouped according to topic, just like in a face-to-face conference, with opportunity to post comments and interact online with the presenters.
- Additional opportunities to interact virtually with attendees and experts through the Mentor-Mentee session, SIG Meetings, Virtual Coffee Breaks, and much more!
