Making Sense of Eating Disorders: The Lived Experience
Please provide your contact details to the Chief Investigator, Dr Elysa Roberts, in order to receive the Informed Consent form necessary to participate in this study and/or to ask questions about the research. Thank you.

Researchers in occupational therapy at the University of Newcastle are exploring how responses to sensory stimuli may affect the experience of or recovery from an eating disorder.

We are seeking people to participate in this study who:
1. Consider themselves recovered or in recovery from an eating disorder
2. Are comfortable talking about their eating disorder experience
3. Are a minimum of 18 years old
4. Are English-speaking

Unfortunately, if you are currently in treatment in an inpatient hospital or day treatment program and/or enrolled in the Occupational Therapy program at University of Newcastle, then you are not eligible to participate in the study.

Data collection will take place via focus group or 1:1 interview at the University of Newcastle or via ZOOM online video technology.

If reading this flyer results in feelings of stress, unpleasant emotions or eating disorder thoughts please contact someone in your local support network or the National Eating Disorders Help Line on 1800 ED HOPE/1800 33 4673 or email
