What is the study about?

REDS (Restrictive Eating Disorder) is a project looking at the variations in how women with eating disorders communicate and interact with others, how they think about themselves and the world around them, and the impact this has on restrictive eating disorders.

Who can take part?

In this project, we are planning to explore how women with eating disorders and women without eating disorders vary on a number of different measures.

To take part, you will need to be:

  • Female
  • 18 years of older
  • Diagnosed with a RED (Anorexia Nervosa, Atypical Anorexia, ARFID)
  • Please note we want to include autistic people with an eating disorder as well as people who have an eating disorder but are not autistic so you may also be eligible if you are diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

What is involved?

The study involves meeting with a researcher to go through a number of tasks and questionnaires for around 2.5 hours. You will you receive a £30 voucher to thank you for your time.
