Survey More

Don't you just love a short survey?  I've added more questions to flesh out the e.d./family issues survey I plan to present at an NYC conference in March. Please take the survey online (it's really quick) and forward to your contacts, if applicable. The survey link is:  E.D./Family Survey.

To give you a little bit of background, I commonly talk about how family members may (in part) influence the development of an eating disorder. We know that. But, not much research has examined what happens to a family as the result of an eating disorder. When I did a literature review using key words such as "family members" "coping," and "eating disorders" no articles came up! Clearly, more work needs to be done in this arena, but for now, there's my brief survey.  Did I mention how quick it is? Just 10 questions!

Ideally, I'd like over 100 responses to make the data meaningful. I'm going to hold off on posting until I meet that goal, so that this post stays on top. Yes, I do believe I'm holding my blog hostage.

Thanks for your participation so far--I will post the summary data, once I have all of it. . . .

I think this is a great topic to do research on! As someone who just sat down with my parents and "spilled the beans" I'm still unsure how it will affect my relationships. Can't wait to hear your results!

I took your survey in hopes it will help something ... I currently started my own blog here a few days ago to help me with my book on the topic of EDs. I hope to help people gain more of a realistic perspective on wheat it is like to be an adult trapped in an adolescent disorder.
