How women with and without eating disorders perceive bodies

I’m looking for female participants aged 16 – 45 years old, who have a current diagnosis of an eating disorder to take part in a study of how women perceive bodies.

The study involves one session, 1.5-2 hours long, at the Department of Psychiatry at the Warneford Hospital site in Headington. You would complete a structured interview to see whether you have an eating disorder, and some computer tasks relating to how you see and feel about your own and others’ bodies. The study also involves being weighed and having your height measured – it will be up to you whether you are told your weight and height or not.

The study has been reviewed and approved by the CUREC ethics committee.


You will be reimbursed for your time with a shopping voucher for £20; reasonable travel expenses can also be covered.

Date required

As soon as possible


Dept of Psychiatry, University of Oxford
