2016 iaedp Symposium Strikes Chord of Harmony with Program Tradition, Treatment Innovations, Cultural Directions and Art Competition

At the 2016 Symposium for the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp), February 17- 21, nearly 700 attendees gathered at the Omni on Amelia Island, Florida, to learn the latest research for eating disorder treatment, from treatment approaches and compelling patient histories of recovery to the latest findings from genetics research. The conference theme, “The Complexity of Best Practices: Evolving and Changing,” reflected the rapidly changing field of eating disorders diagnosis and treatment.

“This year’s Symposium reached new heights, attracting a record-number of attendees who were exposed to more than 40 presentations and workshops,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director of The iaedp Foundation. “The level of engagement was both exciting and intense, as the hundreds of professionals joined together, all seeking the latest information available in our country today about the treatment of eating disorders.”

Keeping with tradition, the winner of the sixth annual body image mannequin art competition, “Imagine Me Beyond What You See,” was announced:

  • First Place Winner - “Balance Embodied,” submitted by Rogers-Madison
  • Runner Up - “Anam Cara, Soul Friend (ROWAN),” submitted by Laura Riss, PsyD/Inner Journey Group
  • Honorable Mention – “Calypso,” submitted by Veritas Collaborative
  • Professional’s Choice – “Nothing into Something,” submitted by Fairhaven Treatment Center

Mannequin entries are judged on clarity of theme, creativity and originality, quality of composition design, and the overall impression and presentation of the artwork. The competition encourages treatment centers and private practices with art therapists to work with clients to provide entries but is open to everyone.

The iaedp Board of Directors’ Awards Committee announced the winners of the 2016 awards:

  • Spirit of iaedp: Laura Cipullo, RD, CDE, CEDRD from New York
  • Member of the Year: Brooke C. E. Farrington, MSW, CEDS, LCSW from Indiana
