Access from EThOS:
Over the recent years, research has documented links between eating disorder (ED) symptomatology and deficits in emotional functioning, with respect to the identification, differentiation and expression of affective states. Theoretical models of eating disorders have become increasingly sophisticated, alluding to the functional role of disordered eating in alleviating negative affect, through physiological and cognitive pathways. The aims of the study were a) to ascertain the specificity of emotional expression problems in women with ED, relative to women with depression and normal controls, b) to compare perceptions of threat posed by emotions among the three groups, c) to determine the relationship between emotional expression and perceptions of threat from emotion in the ED sample, and d) to extend a previous study (Hayaki et al., 2002a) to an ED sample, by exploring the relationship between emotional expression and body dissatisfaction, using a multiple hierarchical regression model.
