One thought on “2014 International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED)

  1. Thank you for the update; the ICED conference sounds very interesting! I am fascinated by the fact that this conference is international and that there will be such a wide range of speakers and topics to be discussed. Previously, I have thought of eating disorders as more of a “western” problem; I recall learning in Intro to Psych that statistically, more individuals from industrialized nations (namely women) suffer from eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. This may be due to the fact that since food resources are so abundant, there is more of an emphasis on “restraint”–as propagated and enforced by mass media and popular culture. However, it is both disturbing and comforting to know that the issue is international. The only reason I chose the word “comforting” is because since this is a shared problem, then hopefully we can facilitate with finding a global solution (keeping cultural sensitivity in mind). I am curious to find out who the speakers will be and what their cultural, professional, and personal backgrounds are. I am definitely interested in attending!
