Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to an international conference on “Treatment Modalities for Eating Disorders: Consensus and Controversy”. The conference will take place in English and Hebrew on February 4-5, 2013 in the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem, Israel. The conference will have a clinical focus, offering professionals from all disciplines who treat eating disorders an opportunity to broaden their knowledge about topics on which there is consensus as well as about more controversial issues in the field. We aim to present a comprehensive, varied, thought- provoking and informative program appropriate for professionals from a wide range of disciplines including family and internal medicine, endocrinology, gynecology, pediatrics, sports medicine, pediatric/adolescent and adult psychiatry, the expressive therapies, nursing, nutrition and dietetics, psychology, social work, and school counseling. Each day’s program will include four plenary lectures, parallel workshops, and short paper sessions on clinical and research issues. All plenary lectures, as well as most of the workshops and some parallel paper sessions will be held in English. Some workshops and short presentations, as well as an optional Teaching Day on Sunday afternoon, February 3, will be held in Hebrew.

Abstract for posters will be accepted until January 15, 2013.

We look forward to welcoming you in Jerusalem.
