Welcome to the Eating Disorders Task Force of Indiana
The Eating Disorders Task Force of Indiana, founded in 1988, is a nonprofit organization of multidisciplinary treatment professionals in the area of eating disorders. We believe that eating disorders are complex, multidimensional disorders that involve social-cultural, psychological, medical and nutritional factors. They also reflect developmental and family issues. We believe that treatment should be provided by professionals trained and experienced in the area of eating disorders and should address contributory factors in as many dimensions as possible.
We promote a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit and the ability to question societal values as crucial to counter our culture's excessive focus on appearance and weight. We see this as necessary both in treatment and in prevention activities directed at residents of Indiana who may be vulnerable.
Thus, our function as a group is predicated on:
Quarterly meetings are held from 10am to 12 noon at the Charis Center for Eating Disorders on the first Fridays of March, June, and December. The September monthly meeting is an annual member conference.
The Charis Center for Eating Disorders is located at 6640 Intech Blvd. Suite 195, Indianapolis, IN 46278. Please call (317) 295-0608 for directions and confirmation of meeting dates.
*The annual member conference is free of charge for those members who have paid dues and attended at least 2 meetings per year. Members who do not meet this criteria may attend by paying a conference fee.
