We want to design the virtual reality café with people from the following groups: 1. People who have experience of having any eating disorder and are aged 14-25 years old 2. People who have experience of being a parent or carer of someone with an eating disorder, and 3. People who work clinically with people with an eating disorder.
To gather views from people with current/previous eating disorders, their parents and carers, and clinicians, to inform the design of a Virtual Reality café graded-exposure scenario, for use as part of the treatment of people with eating disorders.
The study involves taking part in a focus group or one to one interview (you can choose which you prefer) for about one hour, to discuss how to design a virtual reality café for use in the treatment of people with eating disorders who find it difficult going to and ordering food and drink in café settings.
