BEDA Conference

| by

The Binge Eating Disorders Association (BEDA) conference is coming up!  March 31-April 2 in Scottsdale Arizona.  Gurze Books will have a table at the conference offering a variety of valuable resources in the fields of Eating Disorders and Body Image.  We are proud to announce that our Workbook/DVD Set, Leftovers, will be on display!  Place an order for Leftovers at the conference and receive a special Conference Only price!

Binge eating is when a person eats a much larger amount of food in a shorter period of time than he or she normally would and that this happens frequently enough to establish a pattern of behavior. During binge eating, the person also feels a loss of control followed by feelings of failure and depression.  It is now recognized as an eating disorder in its own right by professionals in the field and is included in the DSM V as a separate diagnostic category.

Leftovers, the Ups and Downs of a Compulsive Eater and its companion workbook explores etiology, triggers and treatment options for this painful pattern.  Binge Eating and other Eating Disorders are often reinforced by the incessant message from the media that being thin means being beautiful and being beautiful means being successful.  We believe that the cycle can be broken and the line-up of brilliant presenters at the upcoming BEDA conference makes this a conference NOT to be missed.
