Longstanding Beliefs and Eating Disorders

Hi there,

My name is Hannah Kelland. I am training to be a clinical psychologist. I am conducting some research into beliefs and eating disorders. I am inviting you to take part in this internet-based research project.

What does the study involve?

Taking part in the study will involve you completing a range of questionnaires. You can fill these out online, or contact me to receive a paper copy. They should take between 30 and 40 minutes to complete.

Why should I take part?

It is hoped that the study will help to increase psychological knowledge about the impact of longstanding beliefs on eating disorders, and of how to best help people who are suffering from them.

Who should take part?

We are looking for women and men who are currently suffering from an eating disorder (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and eating disorder not otherwise specified). Also, you must be 18 – 65 years of age and speak fluent English.

What should I do if I want to take part or want further information?

“I had consistently been losing weight for more than 8 months and had become accustomed to eating very little. This triggered a return of my anorexia, after a 20-year period of recovery. SWEDA were able to offer me an appointment the very next day. When we met I was feeling very ill and frightened.I spoke to them about my fears, but then took the decision to go to my doctor on the way home. I was admitted to hospital within a few days.”
