About the research trial

The aim of this research is to identify the relationships between temperament, perceived parenting style and early maladaptive schemas in young adults (aged 18-29) who have been diagnosed with or are experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder (called disordered eating).
The information gained from the research will be used to improve the current understanding of how temperament, parenting style and early maladaptive schema levels influence eating disorder symptoms and diagnosis. As well as contributing to ongoing research, these results will allow mental health clinicians to address these factors and provide more targeted eating disorder treatment to their clients.

Recruitment details

The project will use an online questionnaire to measure beliefs, worldview, temperament, and perceived parental relationships in young adults with disordered eating. Eligible participants are between the ages of 18 to 29 years old, and either have been diagnosed with an eating disorder and/or are currently experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder.
