iaedp Symposium 2013
What’s New Under the Sun? Innovative Approaches to Treatment

March 21-24, 2013 *The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa* Henderson, Nevada

We are seeking abstracts on inventive treatment modalities for the numerous phases of the eating disordered client’s journey-- from denial and resistance to treatment and, ultimately, recovery. The spectrum ranging from disordered eating to life threatening medical complications requires skill and creativity. Treatment providers from all disciplines are challenged to creatively convert ongoing research, brain imaging, and treatment updates into meaningful ED treatment protocols. We are seeking submittals on individual, group, and family work which help clinicians in all treatment settings. Please include an experiential or interactive component in your presentation. Preference will be given to unique presentations offered for the first time.

A peer review committee is responsible for making the final selections for Symposium 2013. This committee will consider the quality of the submittal, the speaker’s experience and qualifications to speak on the abstract submitted, relevance to the conference theme, and the applicability of the presentation to both inpatient and outpatient settings.
