Welcome to the ICED
The Academy for Eating Disorders invites you to participate in the 2006 International Conference on Eating Disorders on June 7-10 at the beautiful Hotel Fira Palace in Barcelona, Spain.
The ICED is the primary gathering place for professionals and advocates engaged in research, treatment and prevention of eating disorders. Each year, ICED attendees, faculty, supporters and exhibitors create a unique, inspiring and intensive environment for education, training, collaboration and dialogue.
The Academy for Eating Disorders
The Academy for Eating Disorders is an international, transdisciplinary, non-profit membership organization for professionals and advocates engaged in research, treatment and prevention of eating disorders.
The Academy is home to more than 1,300 members. Approximately 25% of these professional members reside outside the United States.
AED provides members and the field at large with a variety of services, resources and educational programs, including the invaluable support of a community of dedicated colleagues.
Since the organization was founded in 1984, the International Conference on Eating Disorders has been AEDs flagship activity and the highlight of the AED year.
Eating disorders are characterized by a persistent pattern of aberrant eating or dieting behavior. These patterns of eating behavior are associated with significant emotional, physical and relational distress.
As a result of this meeting, participants will be able to:
Foster an appreciation of the advances in treatment, prevention and research techniques for individuals suffering from eating disorders.
Examine empirical evidence highlighting the interaction of constitutional and sociocultural factors in the development of eating disorders.
Review current knowledge on developmental factors that are believed to influence eating disorder development across the lifespan.
Explain recent empirical and clinical findings on specialized treatment techniques suited to commonly seen groups of eating disorder patients.
Understand risk factors and treatment issues unique to special populations of individuals with eating disorders, including athletes and individuals with comorbid medical conditions.
