International Conference on Eating Disorders 2023

May 31, 2023 to June 3, 2023

These materials are intended ONLY for those who attended the "International Conference on Eating Disorders 2023 " held May 31-June 3, 2023 in Washington, DC.

Activity description

Since 1993, the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), a global professional organization, has been committed to research, prevention and treatment of eating disorders. The International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED) brings together eating disorders professionals to learn from and be inspired by a diverse selection of research approaches, clinical practices, theoretical ideas and much more, all with relevance or implications in the field. ICED is an opportunity to network with other eating disorders professionals from around the world and to build a global network. Learning across differences—whether in terms of discipline, profession, perspectives or life experience—can often spark our most thought-provoking, informative, diverse and cutting-edge ideas and moments for the eating disorder field and beyond.

For ICED 2023, to be held in Washington DC, our theme is “Broadening our Impact: Enhancing Visibility Through Collaboration and Outreach.” Our goal is to stress the importance of stepping outside of our field and disciplines (our comfort zones) and stepping into other fields and disciplines with the hope of collaborating and engaging in outreach to increase our impact.

Ineligible companies are defined by the ACCME as companies whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing health care products used by or on patients. Individuals must disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies and regardless of their view of the relevance of the relationship to the education. OHE ensures that the content is independent of commercial bias.

AAPC-Certified Coders
AAPC will honor 1-for-1 CEUs for any live event offering CME credit or AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. A certificate of attendance or completion is necessary to show participation.

Counselors and/or marriage and family therapists
CA: The Board of Behavioral Sciences has deferred CE course approvals to APA and ASWB for its licensees. See those approvals under Psychologists and Social Workers.
Other States: If your state is not specifically listed, nearly all state Counselor and MFT boards accept either APA or ASWB approval, or are reciprocal with other state licensing board approvals, such as those listed above. Check with your board to be sure.

A certificate of attendance will be provided to learners upon completion of activity requirements, enabling participants to register with licensing boards or associations that have not been preapproved for credits. To apply for credit types not listed above, participants should use the procedure established by the specific organization from which they wish to obtain credit.
