[corrected!]Participate in online study about reading ED memoirs
September 22, 2009*Apologies! I've corrected the link below.
I've just received this request for your thoughts about eating disorders memoirs, for a doctoral study.
Please read this request and, if you are so moved, follow the link (you may need to cut and paste the link in your browser) to Jodie's study!
I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge conducting research on people's experiences of reading eating disorder memoirs. Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, recruiting participants has been difficult. As a personal fan of "Gaining" and your newsletter, I thought I would email you to ask for your help. I wondered if it would be at all possible for you to include a line or two about the study in your newsletter, or on one of your blogs. The study is approved by the University of Cambridge Ethics Committee, and involves a short (15-20) minute online survey. Participants are also invited (at the end of the survey) to participate in a interview to share their experiences in more detail. I have included the link below so that you can view the study.
