Participate in research studying the psychological effects on parents as carers for offspring with Eating Disorders.

An MSc candidate at the University of Liverpool seeks participants for a study on the psychological effects on parents of caring for offspring with Eating Disorders.

Your gender, the age of your child, or the length of time of your caregiving does not matter. It also does not matter if you feel that you are coping well or badly. We know this is a really challenging experience and we can learn from all of you.

The objective is to better understand methods by which parents cope with the challenge of caring, with the hope of recommending coping methods that will work for all parents.

The study will be conducted via online interviews on Microsoft Teams between now and Sunday, September 12, 2021. Interviews will last one to two hours.

For more information, please email dianesokolyk@videotron.ca
