Emotion intervention for people with eating disorders
Through many years of research, we have shown that difficulties with emotions are associated with disordered eating. Based on these findings we have developed an accessible educational video intervention. The video targets unhelpful beliefs about emotions and aims to teach people how best to identify and manage their emotions. This study will investigate how effective this intervention is for people waiting for treatment for their eating disorder.
We are seeking members with a lived experience of an eating disorder to take part in one small-group on-line workshop. The aim of the workshops is to make sure that the intervention and study design will best meet the needs of people with an eating disorder.
We are seeking 6-10 people with a diagnosis of an eating disorder who are currently on a waiting list for treatment. You may or may not have received treatment for your eating disorder in the past.
We are inviting people from all demographic backgrounds:
- who are aged 18 years or over
- have a diagnosis of an eating disorder (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or other specified feeding or eating disorder)
- are currently on a waiting list for treatment
We aim to recruit an equal number of men and women.
What will I be asked to do?
We will invite you to join up to 5 other people living with an eating disorder and researchers at one on-line workshop. Together, we will refine the intervention, co-create an app to accompany the video, and decide the study design.
Please note: If you do not feel comfortable taking part in a group, we can arrange one-to-one discussions with a researcher instead.
When and where?
The workshops will take place between September and November 2022 at a date and time to be confirmed and convenient for attendees. Workshops will last 60-90 minutes.
The workshops will be held on-line
Will I get anything for taking part?
Payment for your time at the workshop will be at £25
