Family-based Online Bulimia Study

Hi y'all,

Please pass the word about the study below. I'm thinking it could be wonderful treatment for the right families. University of Chicago is at the forefront of research on ED treatment, and I trust their protocols completely.

************************************

The University of Chicago is conducting a research study designed to examine the efficacy of an Internet-based program for parents with adolescent children who show early signs of bulimia nervosa. We are seeking families who have an adolescent (ages 12-17) who engages in binge eating (large amounts of food in a short period of time) and/or compensatory purging (e.g., vomiting). Participating families will use an Internet-based program to address their adolescent’s eating disorder symptoms.

To be eligible:
* Families with an adolescent child (ages 12-17)
* Adolescent demonstrates eating disorder symptoms

For information call:
Colleen Stiles-Shields at 773-834-5677 and mention your interest in the Family Internet-based Early Bulimia Nervosa Study
