BiPS Body and Emotions Study

6 Nov 2020

We are seeking teenagers (aged 11 to 13) to participate in a online study about how teenagers feel satisfied with their body. Participation in the study involves the teenager answering online questions about how satisfied they feel with their body, their well-being and their relationships with friends and family.

The BiPS Body and Emotions Project is a longitudinal study currently being conducted by Isabella Muscolino in the School of Applied Psychology under the supervision of Dr. Samantha Dockray.

The study aims to examine how pubertal changes, in combination with processes of psychosocial development, emotion regulation and experience, influence body dissatisfaction and individual’s behaviour. 

We are asking 90 boys and girls (aged 11-13 years) to participate to the BiPS Study. 

It takes about 30 minutes for the child/teen to do the measures. The measures are questionnaires that can be completed online with a tablet or a smartphone or a computer. 

If you are curious about the study or if you wish your teen to take part in it, please click on the following link: 

In this page you will find information about the project as well as the online form to express your interest in it.
