The ACT Research Group at Utah State University is seeking adolescents with mild to severe symptoms of Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and their caregiver to participate in a research study. The purpose of this study is to better understand ARFID and how it relates to other eating disorders, along with to inform the development of new treatments for ARFID and disordered eating generally. Participation involves the adolescent and their caregiver each completing 4 questionnaires of psychological processes and nutritional intake over the course of 1 week.

To be eligible your child must be 12-17 years old, have at least some symptoms of ARFID and/or selective eating, and you both must be fluent in English.
