About the Course:
Understanding recovery and how to support those seeking it is critical in the eating disorders (ED) field, yet there are still no standardized criteria for recovery. Conference presentations and published research have suggested definitions and examined why a consensus is important. In this panel, we focus on how existing understandings of recovery have emerged and how we might bridge gaps between qualitatively- and quantitatively-focused analyses to build a picture of recovery that takes into account “objective” and “subjective” criteria, and incorporates the perspectives of researchers, clinicians, patients and carers. We aim to elucidate the methods used in recovery research, and examine whether and how different paradigms could be bridged to create more fulsome understanding. Methodologies used will be explained and discussion among attendees facilitated. First, quantitative methods will be presented, including group comparisons, regression analyses and hierarchical linear modeling (15 minutes). Next, several qualitative methodologies, including grounded theory, narrative inquiry, thematic analysis, content analysis, and arts-based approaches will be reviewed (15 minutes). Mixed-methods approaches used in other fields will then be described, and their application to ED recovery research considered. Specifically, the use of cluster analysis with qualitative data will be highlighted (10 minutes). In the second half of the presentation, attendees will break into small groups of individuals with different perspectives (clinical, research, lived experience) and invited to discuss: (1) how different methodologies may impact recovery definitions; (2) what perspectives may be overlooked when using specific approaches; and (3) whether and how different approaches can be meaningfully combined (30 minutes). We will conclude with a group discussion of responses to these three questions and formulate suggestions for the propelling of novel, comprehensive, and representative research on ED recovery (20 minutes).
This course is based on the book, Taking a Different Perspective on Recovery created by Therese E. Kenny, MSc, Andrea LaMarre, BA, MSc., PhD, Heather Hower, MSW, LICSW, ACSW, QCSW, Erin Harrop, MSW, PhD-C, and Rachel Bachner-Melman, PhD, FAED in 2020.
