Mannequins Make a Statement in Phoenix!

Eating Disorders Professionals Unveil Winner of Newly Launched Body Image Art Competition “Imagine Me Beyond What You See

 

“Imagine Me Beyond What You See” will auction off winning entry and showcase all submissions

 

Phoenix, Arizona (January 24, 2011) –The International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) invites attendees to behold the beauty as seen through the eyes of those affected by eating disorders. “Imagine Me Beyond What You See” is an awareness contest encouraging treatment centers and private facilities with art therapists, as well as students and the general public, to work with patients to design mannequins in a way that reflects their perception of beauty. Paint, paper-mâché, glitter, clay and fabric are all acceptable and usable mediums to alter, illustrate and create a uniquely beautiful body.

The winner will be spotlighted at the 2011 iaedp Symposium, March 3-6, receive a financial award, and have their artwork used, with the hope of educating the public on the misconception of body image, in 2012 iaedp symposium promotional mailings. The winning mannequin will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the iaedp Foundation.

The auction will take place at the red-carpet film premiere of Darryl Robert’s “America the Beautiful: Body Mass Index.” Darryl is an expert on body image in America since directing two movies – “America the Beautiful: Body Mass Index” and “America the Beautiful” – which took a deep look into how Americans link beauty with health, and obsess over outward appearances.

Imagine Me Beyond What You See” is an annual Body Image Mannequin Art Competition and Awareness Campaign designed to promote a healthy awareness and acceptance of body images. While mixed mediums are allowed, photographs of all entries had to be submitted to qualify for the contest and will judged on clarity of theme, creativity and originality, quality of composition and design, along with the overall impression and presentation of the piece. This year’s judges include a distinguished panel of eating disorder professionals, art therapists, and renowned artist, Fritz Liedtke, who will be premiering an exhibit of “Skeleton in the Closet,” his photographic documentary, at this year’s Symposium. 

The winning entry will be announced on Saturday, March 5.  While only one mannequin will be auctioned off, all of the submissions will be made into posters and displayed as works of art throughout the Symposium.

Pre-Conference Seminar Prepares Medical Professionals to Recognize, Treat Early Signs

 iaedp Foundation Provides First-Time CME Offering Before the 2011 Symposium in Phoenix, March 3 – 6

 PHOENIX (January 18, 2011) – According to a 2010 report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), most physicians will see patients with eating disorders, which is why the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) is introducing a CME pre-conference seminar on March 2 titled “Eating Disorders: Physicians in the Trenches, Mobilizing Resources for Effective Treatment.”  The six-hour program provides useful, practical training for medical professionals who do not specialize in eating disorders, but are often the first medical professional to see the signs and symptoms that their patients are suffering with disordered eating. 

            During their careers, many medical professionals come across patients struggling with eating disorders and related problems. Since patients are more likely to recover when disordered eating is detected and treated early, the iaedp Symposium pre-conference seminar is specifically designed to teach psychiatrists, primary care physicians, residents, medical students, nurses and insurance providers how to recognize, evaluate and mobilize the resources needed to treat patients with eating disorders across the spectrum of ages, scenarios and with varying degrees of malnutrition and medicalcomorbidity and necessity. 

 The curriculum for the seminar stems from over two years of collaborative work by the iaedp physician task force, who also will lead the 2011 pre-conference program. Members of the iaedp physician task force are: Dr. Emmett R. Bishop, Jr., Dr. Jennifer Guadiani, Dr. Pauline Powers, Dr. Diane Mickley, Dr. Kim McCallum and Dr. Ovidio Bermudez, who all share concern about the lack of preparation for identifying, diagnosing and treating eating disorders physicians receive in their formal education and training. Their goal was to design a program to meet the needs of medical professionals who serve as the crucial entry point to the medical system – and road to recovery – for patients. 

Each of the task force members hold academic appointments at universities, in addition to being involved in daily patient care. Their combined expertise offers unmatched training for attendees.  For more information about the pre-conference seminar, go to http://iaedp.confex.com/iaedp/2011/webprogram/Session1783.html
