The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together psychologists, cognitive scientists, philosophers and clinical researchers who work on body representation and perception, with a focus on understanding body size and shape distortions related to eating disorders. The workshop will consist of presentations of theoretical perspectives and empirical findings on a range of phenomena related to body representation and perception in both healthy participants and eating disorder patients. In addition to talks, the workshop will provide opportunities for participants to discuss future directions for research into these areas.
