What is body peace?
Body Peace is a first-of-its-kind international virtual body image and Eating Disorders conference creates a space where people can get practical training, inspiration and information about eating disorders and body image. Every year, Body Peace brings together survivors, caregivers, and health professionals to learn from keynotes, speakers, and panels, as well as from each other. Body Peace takes place online through Zoom, so you can tune in from anywhere. Last year, 216 participants from 4 continents attended live!
Charitable organization Body Brave organizes Body Peace with support from NIED, Eating Disorders Nova Scotia and Bridgepoint Centre for Eating Disorders. Every year, we bring in organizations and individuals from around the world to collaborate with us and make this an unforgettable event! Proceeds from the conference go to providing life-saving treatment to those struggling with devastating eating disorders.
Our theme, Revolutionizing Recovery, focuses on transforming current understandings of recovery.Body Peace 2020 wants to revolutionize recovery,as health care professionals owning our mistakes, as caregivers sharing the journey, and for those living with eating disorders, taking back recovery. This is a revolution open to all, and we’d love for you to join us.
