Exploring the role of cognitive flexibility, rumination and perfectionism in anorexia nervosa
About this study
How we think influences symptoms and our experiences. Cognitive flexibility is the ability to adapt to changes in the environment and/or changing task demands. This project aims to clarify the role of cognitive flexibility in anorexia nervosa. This research will investigate the role of cognitive flexibility and related processes in the maintenance of disordered eating symptoms.
If you have a current or past diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, will be asked to complete a short interviewing discussing your experiences of cognitive inflexibility in your day-to-day life. This interview will be recorded using an audio recording device.
If you chose to participate, you will receive $25 in recognition of your expenses (time/travel costs) incurred in participation.
