Research Opportunites

We invite you to participate in a focus group to identify clinicians’ practices regarding
atypical anorexia nervosa. We hope this will be useful to the iaedp-kc’s membership
because no empirical research characterizing clinicians’ practices for clients with
atypical anorexia nervosa currently exist.

To participate, you must be age 18 or older and regularly treat individuals with eating
disorders. All professional disciplines are eligible to participate. The study will involve
reviewing a 10-minute survey and providing feedback in focus groups of four to ten
individuals. Focus groups will last for approximately one-hour. Although no
compensation will be provided, we plan to distribute the study and publish the results of
the study. We will share our results with you through the iaedp-kc’s listserv. Your
responses will be kept confidential.
