Eating Disorder Therapist Research About Burnout

University of Nevada, Las Vegas is conducting a study examining burnout in therapists who work with patients with eating disorders. If you treat patients with eating disorders or have in the past, they respectfully request your assistance with this study.

The study will take 20-30 minutes of your time to complete. For your participation, you can also choose to be entered into a raffle to win one of four $25 Visa gift cards. If you are willing to participate, we request that you go to the following website:
There you will answer various questions related to therapist burnout and your experiences treating patients with eating disorders. Your data will be kept completely confidential and all data will be given ID codes-no connection between your data and your name will be recorded.
