Validation of an Assessment of Eating Disorder Functions

Do you or someone else think you have an eating disorder?

Researchers at Western University are seeking participants for a study designed to validate a measure which assesses the reasons why individuals engage in eating disorder behaviours (such as binge eating, restricting, and purging), or the functions of these behaviours. 

This is a remote study, in which participants will spend approximately 30 – 45 minutes completing an online survey which contains our eating disorder functions measure and other questions related to their mood, emotions, mental health, and relationships. All participants will have the opportunity to enter their names in a draw as compensation for their time and effort. 

Eligible participants are individuals who:

  • are at least 16 years old; and 
  • currently have any eating disorder.
