Welcome to the Association for Advancement of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) Obesity and Eating Disorder Special Interest Group members (OED SIG) website! The OED SIG is a highly visible and impactful group at ABCT (see http://www.abct.org for more information on ABCT).
As a multidisciplinary group of professionals with clinical and research interests in obesity and eating pathology, members of the OED SIG offer a wide range of expertise in biological, behavioral, clinical, epidemiological, and physiological aspects of these disorders. Over our years as an established SIG, we have consistently engaged in many tasks to advance our overall goal of understanding, preventing, and treating obesity and eating disorders. These tasks include:
- presenting high-quality research in the form of symposia, papers, and posters at the ABCT annual conference;
- encouraging collaborative research through correspondence via the OED email listserv and networking opportunities;
- providing student awards for outstanding research projects;
- collecting and disseminating graduate school and internship information for students who want to pursue an expertise in this area; and, 5) representing the SIG at the Expo Cocktail hour Poster Session.
