"Attending the 2014 EDIC conference afforded me the opportunity to learn more and think about different ways of working with my ED clients. It was great to meet colleagues from all over the world. In the main conference hall for example I found myself sitting next to someone who had travelled from Australia and another from New Zealand; nowhere else could I have experienced such keenness and empathic warmness, all eager to discuss their own professional experiences. I shall be returning to the 2016 conference, to meet old friends, make new contacts and think more about how I can be more effective in my work; to participate in the workshops and of course enjoy the comradery. I hope to see you there."
