Guided Self Help for Young People with Eating Disorders:

Request for participants

I am a PhD student at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, working under the supervision of Professor Roz Shafran. The aim of my PhD is to develop and evaluate a guided self-help treatment for children and young people with eating disorders.

I am currently running focus groups to better understand stakeholders views on guided self-help interventions for children and young people with eating disorders. We will then use these findings to inform the development of the treatment to ensure that it is sensitive to the needs of children and young people with eating disorders, their families and the clinicians that work with them.

We are looking to recruit young people (aged 11-17) with eating disorders and parents/carers of young people (aged up to 17) with eating disorders for the focus groups. The focus group will be online and will last approximately 1.5 hours. Participants will receive a £40 Amazon or Love2Shop voucher for their time. The study has received ethical approval from the UCL Research Ethics Committee.
