Academics and clinicians are being invited to participate in a survey investigating eating disorder symptoms and related psychological concepts.
Swinburne University of Technology Master of Psychology (Clinical) student Catiray Poiani-Cordella is conducting the research project.
Ms Poiani-Cordella is studying responses from individuals working in the body image and/or eating disorders field and comparing them to responses from those working in other areas.
‘This research is based on our understanding that body image concerns and other symptoms of eating disorders are increasingly common in the general population, but it is unclear if these symptoms are also present in people working in the field,’ she said.
Ms Poiani-Cordella said the survey, which can be found here, takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Participants are asked to complete a range of demographic questions and measures looking at various personality traits and health behaviours.
People in the following fields are invited to participate:
- Academics and/or clinicians working predominantly in the body image/eating disorders field
- Academics and/or clinicians working in the mental health field, outside of body image/eating disorders
- Academics and/or clinicians working in other fields of health, outside of mental health and body image/eating disorders; and
- Academics working in other fields outside of health, mental health or body image/eating disorders.
