Home News Research Projects How the regulation of emotions contributes to the development of Eating Disorder symptoms in women

Researchers at La Trobe University would like to understand how the regulation of emotions contributes to the development of Eating Disorder symptoms in women, across the range of symptom severity (La Trobe University Research Office HREC Approval number HEC17-116). This research aims to improve our understanding of why women engage in Eating Disorder behaviours, and may allow for treatment approaches to more effectively target symptoms. Participation involves completing a series of questionnaires about parent’s reactions to emotion expression, emotion vulnerability, perfectionism, relationships in adulthood, difficulties regulating emotions, and Eating Disorder symptoms. Participants will also be asked to provide demographic information.

There is the potential for individuals to experience an emotional reaction to the questions asked in this survey. The contact details of several services will be provided should participants experience an emotional reaction to the content of the study (e.g., the phone number of Lifeline). You do not need to have a direct experience of an Eating Disorder to participate. However, we are interested in the experiences of women only. Please be aware that this study does not include treatment for Eating Disorder symptoms.
