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.
