Beat are delighted to announce that we are hosting EDIC 2020 in collaboration with the Faculty of Eating Disorders of the Royal College of Psychiatrists! Join us on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 March 2020 in Glasgow at the University of Strathclyde.
EDIC’s programme is designed by experts and influenced by the experiences of people who have recovered from their illness or family members who have supported a loved one through recovery.
Organised by Beat in collaboration with the Faculty of Eating Disorders of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, EDIC 2020 is influenced by the experiences of people who have recovered from their illness, and family members who have supported a loved one into recovery, and several sessions will be supported or led by Beat Ambassadors.
Keynotes will present on topics of critical importance, while seminars, workshops and other breakout sessions will explore a wider range of emerging research findings. A planned range of fringe sessions will offer opportunities to look at eating disorders from different angles.
EDIC 2020 is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the cutting edge of research and to explore how it can be used to improve policy and practice for people affected by eating disorders.
We're delighted to announce the confirmed themes for EDIC 2020:
More programme announcements will be made soon.
“I think this is one of the best conferences I have attended – great range of topics and workshops and always great to meet new people and catch up with old colleagues.”
“Thank you for such an informative event. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have come away with so much knowledge that I can not only apply to my own recovery, but also within my role as a professional.”
“I think it's long overdue to have more contributions from people with lived experience at major conferences and so I found the Beat Ambassador's input really excellent.”
“Fantastic conference – it's not often that you get to 5.30pm on day 2 of a conference and still feel energised and want more!”
“It was even better than anticipated and I found it to be informative and inspiring!
