How long will I take part in this research? What can I expect if I take part in this research?
As a participant, you will answer some questions about yourself. Questions will ask about your eating patterns, your thoughts about eating, thoughts about yourself, and times where you might have hurt yourself. Questions will also ask about difficult and stressful experiences. (We will keep this information secret, as described below.) You will also complete a brief, computer-based tasks that will together last about 1 hour total. We will then email you three and six months after you participate to answer some more questions about yourself. Some of the questions we ask you and some of the images in the computer-based task will be related to self-injury. Since you will be answering questions about information that may be private, we recommend completing the study when alone.
