Athlete study

Categories: Membership News

Hello I’m a psychology student at UCLAN. I’m currently doing my dissertation and was wondering if any of your athlete’s would like to take part. I’m researching coach-athlete attachment type and the effects this has on eating psychopathology. I’m looking to see if there is a correlation between negative attachment types (anxious and avoidant) and eating psychopathology. I’m looking for athletes that compete at University 1st team level or other (regional, national, international, county, club) and was hoping you may have some athletes who would want to take part.

If you’re interested please email me back and I can send relevant information to take part in this research.

Regards, Joe.


PS: This requires athletes to complete an online questionnaire only, that should take no longer than 5-10 minutes. Also athletes have to be 18+ just for this particular study.

I know this can be a bit of a nuisance but if you or your athletes take part I’d appreciate this a lot. The whole participant process is quick and simple and should hopefully be beneficially! This research will also be used in a wider study later which is looking at the very important area that is athlete’s and eating disorders. I’d imagine this would be of interest to a lot of coaches and athletes.
