I have been to Boston, but not this year and for no longer than a day.
I have been to Eating Disorder Conferences but not to ICED and not this year.
So my "attendance" at this conference was virtual and limited - for a couple of hours each day I scoured my twitter feed (a spasmodically accessed place) for posts with the hashtag #ICED2015 and occasionally commented on those I found helpful or worrying.
From this extremely limited view of the conference I understand that it began with great stuff; genetics and exposure therapy, the importance of collaborative working and the necessity to challenge the eating disorder, went on to cite parental expressed emotion as a block to successful treatment and ended with parents being told that they were unwelcome at the table and that many of them didn't want to be there anyway.
For those of you who WERE there, how unhelpful is my view? What did I miss and what did I get completely wrong from listening to the birds?
