• Young people (aged 11-17 years) with a current, or previous, eating disorder diagnosis
• Parents/carers of young people (aged up to 17 years) with a current, or previous, eating disorder diagnosis
• Health care professionals with at least 1 years’ experience in treating young people (aged up to 17 years) with eating disorders and/or other common mental health conditions
To develop a brief, guided self-help intervention to support children and young people with eating disorders, and their families. The aim of this research is to better understand peoples' views on guided self-help interventions to ensure that the intervention developed is sensitive to the needs of children and young people with eating disorders, their families and the clinicians that work with them.
The study will involve completing a short screening questionnaire to check that you are eligible to take part in the study.
If you are eligible to take part in the study, you will be invited to take part in a focus group. Each focus group will consist of 6-8 people. In the focus groups, the researchers will ask people to discuss their past experiences of using self-help. They will also ask what people think a guided self-help intervention should include, who it should be for, where it should be accessed and who should be involved in the support.
Each focus group is expected to take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. The focus groups will be arranged at a convenient time for the people involved and will take place on Microsoft Teams. Young people, and their parents/carers, will receive a £40 Amazon or Love2Shop voucher for taking part in a focus group.
If you have any questions, or would like to take part in the study, please contact Emily Davey at email@example.com.
