About the Course:
There has been a recent call to shift focus for eating disorder prevention away from individual-level interventions to address broader systems that confer risk for disordered eating. However, this paradigm shift requires creative, non-traditional approaches to promote change. What strategies can eating disorder scholars, practitioners, and advocates adopt to mitigate risk on a population level? The proposed panel will introduce attendees to four different examples of science-to-policy translational work focused on reducing risk for eating disorders in three different countries: USA, Australia, and France. Presentation topics will include the following: 1) a Delphi study to develop consensus on strategies to address weight stigma in public health research and practice, 2) a multidisciplinary analysis of the “clean” eating trend and the legal and policy landscape for regulation, 3) a mixed methods investigation of a community-based, population level health service to prevent body dissatisfaction and disordered eating, and 4) a review of recent legislation and practice focusing on the use of labels on media imagery and the empirical data supporting different strategies. The panel will be moderated by a leading expert on eating disorder policy translation work. The panel will include short presentations (i.e., four 12-minute presentations, plus 3-minute question and answer sessions) followed by approximately 25 minutes for an interactive, collective brainstorming session. During this time, attendees will be presented with a target risk factor and asked to identify possibilities to reduce eating disorder risk in their home context through policy-translation research, coalition building with healthcare professionals and community advocates, or civic engagement with policy makers. The session will conclude with attendees sharing strategies identified during the brainstorming activity and planning next steps for action in their home setting.
This course is based on the book, Translating Research Into Public Health Policy and Practice: Multidisciplinary Case Studies Focused on Body Image and Eating Disorder Prevention created by Suman Ambwani, PhD, Laura Hart, PhD, Lyza Narelle Norton, MND, Katelyn Ferreira, MPH, Rachel Rodgers, PhD, FAED, and S. Bryn Austin, ScD, FAED in 2020.
