Mark your calendars! Our 3rd annual FEAST of Knowledge will be June 14 in Sydney, Australia, the day after AED’s International Conference on Eating Disorders.
Our 2018 and 2019 events were amazing. Enjoy some comments from the 2019 FOK in New York:
Facing Tough Topics
"They (F.E.A.S.T.) are powerful and vocal in the eating disorder community and they have taken on this issue headlong."
F.E.A.S.T. – Families Are Part of Healing
"F.E.A.S.T. is the first of its kind and a pioneer in ensuring families are intimately involved in healing and treatment of eating disorders. I couldn't have helped my daughter without FEAST. I was also able to forgive myself and learn more about my own experience of an eating disorder!"
Support Strength for Recovery
Thank you for being there for me when I needed it most. Not sure if recovery would have been achieved without this forum.
heard and valued
Being validated as a caregiver by professionals! Knowing that in that room, caregivers were heard and valued.
TED Talk feel
I loved the interactivity and the TED talk feel. It was very intimate and personal too.
The top folks in the field in an intimate, less formal setting that makes it accessible - removes intimidation factor
science and family
It was all about science and all about family at the same time. Brilliant!
Honestly, as a caregiver I have never participated in anything where I felt like, from the start, the caregiver role was not just acknowledge but supported in such a thoughtful and honest way. When Laura acknowledged that some of us were going to need to stay in touch with our kids for ED related coaching it brought tears to my eyes - it was a remarkable validation of the realities caregivers work though every day, and it was incredible to have that statement set the tone of understanding and support that were such strong themes of the day.
exceeded my expectations
I have been to both FOK: Chicago & NYC. They have both exceeded my expectations in content and execution.
I left feeling that all was not lost. Thank you.
on the same page
This was a good event to help get my husband and me on the same page.
