Participants Needed for Online Research Study on Women with a History of Anorexia Nervosa

I am a clinical psychology doctoral candidate at Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, CA. My research study examines various aspects of internal and external control as they relate to eating attitudes and recovery. I am currently recruiting participants who have recovered from anorexia as well as those who remain symptomatic. If you are a woman between the ages of 18-45, who was initially diagnosed with anorexia nervosa between the ages of 13-25, I invite you to participate in my online study. The Institutional Review Board at Fielding Graduate University has approved my research; your participation is voluntary and anonymous. The study will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
