Unfortunately, this event has been postponed and will be rescheduled in Autumn 2020.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

This event showcases NTU’s research on social groups and eating disorder recovery. The contribution made by group memberships to eating disorder recovery is not well understood and consequently, they are an under-utilised resource. Researchers at NTU found that sharing a social identity with others (e.g., peers and family members) benefits health and well-being. These findings have been used to promote the inclusion of peer support in Ireland’s National Clinical Programme for Eating Disorders.

We hope that this event will:

  • raise professional awareness of the important relationship between group memberships and ED recovery
  • facilitate the co-production of guidelines for best practice on incorporating social groups into treatment pathways.

The morning session will comprise talks from NTU academics as well as representatives from First Steps ED’s peer support services. The afternoon will comprise a plenary session whereby attendees respond to academic discussions in roundtable discussions. These discussions will be written up as a policy document providing recommendations for including group-based support as part of the eating disorder care pathway.
