Update: Full conference programme – PDF

The third Irish National Eating Disorders Conference will take place on Friday February 23rd 2018 and the venue is the Trinity Gas Building on D’Olier Street, Dublin 2. This will be an all-day event: 09:30-16:30.


The morning keynote speaker will be Prof Ivan Eisler who is Joint Head of CAMHS Eating Disorders Service and Professor of Family Psychology and Family Therapy at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, and Head of the Section of Family Therapy.  The provisional title of his talk is on ‘The role of family therapy in the treatment of eating disorders’. 

In the afternoon, Prof Eisler will separately address a smaller group and this talk will be open primarily to anyone affected by an eating disorder. For those who wish to only hear Prof. Eisler in the afternoon and do not wish to attend the rest of the day, there is a lower fee for this element of the conference.

In the afternoon session, Prof Michel Probst, Leuven, Belgium, will deliver a parallel two-hour practical workshop on ‘The Use of Psychomotor Therapy (Body Oriented Therapy) in the Treatment of Body Image Issues in Eating Disorders’.

As before, it will be a very practical conference and should be of benefit to all clinicians and those who have an interested in eating disorders.
