Current Research

 Dr. Mills does experimental research on the psychological influences on body image and eating behaviour.  Recently, she has been studying the effects of weight-related feedback on mood and self-esteem, and the role of body checking behaviours (e.g., repeated weighing, looking in the mirror, etc).  She also studies eating behaviour, especially in dieters.  She does clinicial research related to the treatment of eating disorders, in collaboration with Toronto-area hospitals.
