Welcome to the Self-Attitudes Lab!
Our lab studies the way our various self-attitudes, like being critical or compassionate towards ourselves, influence the way we feel, think, and behave. We are especially interested in the relationship between self-attitudes, eating behaviour, and body image. Through our research, we seek to inspire new ways to understand, prevent, and treat eating disorders, and innovative ways to promote flexible eating, healthy body image, and well-being.
