Understanding Internal States in People with Eating Disorders Can U Help?

A psychology master’s student at the University of East London, Jennifer McBride, is doing her thesis project on how experience of internal states may be related to the development, maintenance and prognosis of certain types of Eating Disorders. You can help contribute to this research by completing some online questionnaires and meeting with her in person to do some computer based activities and cognitive tests. 

 She is hoping to recruit a further 15-20 participants (over 18 years of age) with a diagnosis of Bulimia or Anorexia Nervosa to meet with over the next month.  More information about the study can be found on the following link and you can email Jennifer (u1345277@uel.ac.uk) if you have any questions or would like to sign up for the study. 




 Your participation would be a huge help and very much appreciated.


Thanks for considering the above and for showing your support for the research. 


Very best wishes,


We Need Your Help Please

I’m helping the British Psychological Society put through a big paper on eating disorders. This is going to We need to know in your own words what it is like to have and live with an eating disorder. We welcome any age and any ED.
You can tell us about good and bad experiences as well as what having an ED meant to you.
Best idea is to  email me Deanne on admin@ncfed.com and we will treat everything in confidence.
Please help us to help you. Email admin@ncfed.com or comment here

Need Your Help For Research Project

Elizabeth Mair and colleagues at Nottingham Trent University need help for there research project entitled “Supporting eating disorder recovery in adolescents” . We would like to know more about the places and groups, (both online and ‘offline’) that adolescents turn to for help with any eating habits that they are worried about. We hope to collect data using an online survey and also by conducting email interviews with young people aged between 16 and 25 years. Participants would be able to complete either a 15 minute survey, an interview or both, depending on their preference. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete online. The interview schedule would be emailed to participants for them to complete in their own time, over the course of a few days, although writing the responses should take a total time of approximately one hour. Adolescents aged 16-25 years old who have experience of connecting with support groups for individuals living with an eating disorders are eligible to participate. Data collection will end in July. Your contribution will help them and us to make provision of help for eating disorders even better. If you would like to help, please contact Elizabeth at elizabeth.mair@ntu.ac.uk
