Recently, I was honored to be invited to speak as part of a Plenary panel at the Virtual ICED put on by the Academy for Eating Disorders and ANZAED.
Plenary panels are sessions for the entire conference audience and feature a panel of a few views of an issue followed by a discussant’s presentation comparing and discussing the different views. This was the third time I have been asked to be on an ICED Plenary panel, and I have organized two ICED plenaries, so I very honored to have been asked onto this one and do not take the opportunity lightly.
ICED features several plenaries each year, this one was focused on the topic of Treatment.
I’ll let the presentation speak for itself. It was a rare opportunity to make the plea from my perspective to an audience with the influence and power to bring change. I am republishing it here by request, and to give these ideas a wider audience.
