Focused Minds Program (Online Intervention for setting achievable personal standards)
About this study
The Focused Minds Program is a free, online program open to all Australians aged 17-25 years who wish to work on setting realistic, achievable standards or who struggle with basing their self-worth on their achievements.
This trial is the first phase of a 3-year study and participants will be asked to provide feedback on the program and suggest improvements for the future. Content from the program is based on the self-help book Overcoming Perfectionism by Roz Shafran, Sarah Egan, and Tracey Wade.
The program is intended to help those at risk of developing an eating disorder by looking at ways to aim for high standards without feeling the need to reach perfection, to improve self-worth by focusing on areas of life which are not linked with achievement, and by tackling self-criticism. The idea behind the program is that focusing a person’s mindset on ’healthy achievement rather than perfectionism’ can reduce some of the factors which may contribute to an eating disorder.
