Eating Disorders, Gender, and Sexuality – Implications for Practice

David presented at the Annual QuEDS Forum with Lived Experience Speakers Nadia and Michael. The presentation focused on the role of gender and sexuality in eating disorder experiences and the implications for practice. The QuEDS Forum is an annual education event for eating disorder professionals, and this year focused on the theme ‘Inclusive Practice.’

Nadia & Michael shared their experience of eating issues while not fitting the eating disorder ‘stereotype’ and how that impacted their recovery journey.
