NEDIC 2019 7th Biennial Body Image & Self-Esteem Conference
National Eating Disorders Information Centre's 2019 7th Biennial Body Image & Self-Esteem Conference will be held on Friday, May 9th & Saturday, May 10th, 2019 at the Chestnut Conference Centre in Toronto.
This 2019 conference is framed around the theme of Radical Unlearning, providing attendees a non-judgmental, compassionate space in which to challenge norms and navigate new ideas. Encompassing equity, innovation and positive body identity, this theme calls for unlearning and unpacking negative and erroneous messaging that people have been subjected to.
Curious how previous years' conferences went? Read the inaugural Journal of the National Eating Disorder Information Centre. This journal is borne out of our desire to provide information that is research-based, evidence-based, and represents best practice. We want the journal to share new information from the field, build community and move the conversation forward.
The papers that appear in this journal reflect work presented by the authors at our 2017 body image and self-esteem conference: Acceptance. Equity. Awareness. Our hope for this journal is to enrich the conference presentations for conference delegates, refresh memories, and share exciting new research and ideas with those not in attendance. We are proud that this journal champions the work of Canadian researchers working tirelessly in the field of eating disorders and body image in order to improve the lives of individuals and shed light on these often misunderstood and under-researched disorders.
