Psych Research: on Womens Experiences of Their Bodies Identities

an IUP doctoral candidate in the Psy.D. Clinical Psychology program is looking volunteers to help with her dissertation by taking a Survey, and here is some more information:

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between women’s body image experiences and eating habits. Another purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of identity on body image and disordered eating. Participation in this study will require approximately 10-20 minutes of your time. You will be answering questions that will be presented using an online survey program. You may find the survey experience and the opportunity to consider your attitudes toward your self-identity to be enjoyable and educational. The information gained from this study may help us to better understand how females’ body image is impacted by various sociocultural factors, as well as whether identity has positive or negative effects on body image or eating behaviors.

I am looking for diverse women who identify in a variety of ways to answer questions about their experiences of their bodies. Women of all ages*, orientations, and ethnicities are welcome! Please share this website with your friends, co-workers, faculty, and students. This research is LGBTQ affirmative. This study has received approval from IUP's Institutional Review Board.
