Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

AED's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) 

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) bring together AED members with personal and professional interests in distinct areas of eating disorders -- body image, family therapy, medical care and psychodynamic psychotherapy, just to name a few. Each SIG organizes itself around those specific activities that best serve its practitioner -- and research-based constituencies. 

Choosing to join a Special Interest Groups may be one of the most important decisions of your career.
