This seminar provides acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) strategies and experiential, expressive methods to provide powerful treatment resources for the practitioner. The psychological complexity of eating disorder clients – diverse race, culture, sexual orientation, and age – who present with one or more co-occurring disorders and, all too often, a history of treatment failures, will be addressed. Attendees will learn to assess the appropriate level of care, prioritize treatment targets and address the temporal order of treatment. This presentation will also incorporate use of body/mind approaches and innovative methods for the clinician. Lecture, demonstration exercises and video clips will be utilized.

The National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) is pleased to be hosting its sixth bi-annual Body-Image and Self-Esteem Conference. The conference will be held at the Chestnut Conference Centre, Toronto on Thursday May 11 & Friday May 12, 2017. This Conference is a unique opportunity in Canada to share and to learn more about the current research, evidence-based practices and innovative outreach in a multi-disciplinary, action-oriented environment. We are currently seeking submissions for workshop sessions (75 or 90 minutes). We invite contributions from individuals who may be working in either eating disorder research, treatment, or prevention (including critical media literacy and early intervention). This call for submissions should be considered guidance as to what potential topics may be suitable, and should not be considered exhaustive. Conference 2017 is framed around the ideas of body acceptance, body equity, diversity, intersectionality, and self-esteem. Historically, portrayals of and research about individuals with eating disorders have not been fully representative of the diversity of individuals who are affected. Submissions are particularly welcomed from people who are working with eating disorders in marginalized and under-researched populations. Attendees join us from many disciplines, and may include child and youth workers, dietitians, educators, fitness professionals, nurses, psychologists, public health professionals, social workers, and therapists, as well as affected individuals or their loved ones/caregivers.
