Can You Help A Sister Out?

I received an email a few days ago from a woman named Amanda. 

Amanda's a trained couples therapist completing her PhD in clinical psychology at Clark University in Worcester, MA.

Amanda needs your help.

For her dissertation, she's developed an anonymous, online survey that asks questions related to:

Do you ever feel that your romantic partner gets in the way of your weight loss?

This is an important study that could help health care professionals better understand their patients' barriers to weight loss.

Here's the link to the ANONYMOUS online survey

Before you begin the survey, you'll want to ensure that you can answer "YES" to the following questions:
*Have you been participating in a weight loss program for the past consecutive 5 weeks?
*Have you been in a committed, cohabitating relationship for the past two years?

Please feel free to repost this on your blog too.

Details from Amanda's email:

Participation in this survey should take approximately 30-45 minutes (there are open-ended questions which sometimes take participants longer to fill out depending on their particular experiences with the phenomenon of partner undermining. We appreciate your thoughtful responses about how you feel your weight loss program is undermined by your romantic partner and how this affects you).

The responses to this survey are anonymous and cannot be traced back to participants. Any question may be left unanswered. Participation is voluntary and may be withdrawn at any time. If eligible to take this survey, you will be provided with an email address to enter a lottery for $100.

This study is being conducted by Amanda G. Harp, M.A., who is a graduate student in the Psychology Department at Clark University under the supervision of James V. Cordova, Ph.D. If you have any questions about this study, please contact Amanda Harp (aharp@clarku.edu) or Dr. James Cordova (jcordova@clarku.edu)
