- Examine psychological, social, behavioral, and physiological factors and their interactions to better inform the development and refinement of eating pathology interventions
- Better understand how peers influence each other in developing and recovering from eating disorder symptoms
- Utilize test meals and multi-modal assessments to better understand the maintenance of eating disorder behaviors
- Understand how weight loss and maintenance contributes to the maintenance of eating disorder behaviors
“A study of fluctuations in health and health behaviors”
- This study is examining how health and health behaviors fluctuate over the course of the day. Participants will complete questionnaire assessments and have height, weight, and body fat percentage assessed three times over the course of the day. This study is open to students in the Psychology Department through the Psychology Experiment Sign-Up System.
“Health and Eating Across Time (HEAT)”
- This study is investigating how differences in weight history and disordered eating behaviors are associated with differences in attitudes, experiences, and behaviors. We are also examining how weight and disordered eating behaviors may change across time in a three-part, online survey.
“Taste, Psychological and Physiological Responses to Food Intake Associated with Disordered Eating”
- Researchers at Ohio University are recruiting women with body image concerns who take measures to control their weight for a three part, in-person research study. Compensation is provided. To see if you are eligible, complete the screen at tinyurl.com/BWELscreensurvey. Ohio University IRB #21-F-14.
“Weight History and Thinking Styles”
- This study is investigating how differences in weight history and problematic eating behaviors are associated with differences in attitudes, experiences, behaviors, and cognitive styles.
We have opportunities for undergraduates to assist with a number of tasks in the lab. These range from running study visits to preparing materials and data entry. If you are interested in becoming a B-WEL research assistant, please contact Dr. Jean Forney at email@example.com.
