Parent carers: How does this role affect relationships with significant others

Thema Peart, Brunel University.

Hello, I’m Thema Peart, a final year Psychology undergraduate at Brunel University and I’m looking for volunteers to be part of an important piece of research concerning parents who care for a child with an eating disorder.

What is the research about?

This research aims to increase our understanding on how the role of carer impacts on relationships both within and outside the family. This research has been ethically approved by the Brunel School of Social Sciences Ethics Committee.

Who can take part?

I'm looking for parents who have a child that has been diagnosed with an eating disorder and see themselves as a main source of care and support for them.

What does it involve?

How do I find out more?

If you are interested in being a part of this important research, or for more information, email me at [email protected]. There will be no obligation to take part.


“I can’t emphasise enough what a massive part SWEDA have played in my journey to finding myself again. They are an incredible charity and are brilliant at their job.
