The enemy within: the association between self-image and eating disorder symptoms in healthy, non help-seeking and clinical young women
2015 (English)In: Journal of Eating Disorders, E-ISSN 2050-2974, Vol. 3, article id 30Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Background: Previous research has shown self-image according to the interpersonal Structural Analysis of SocialBehavior model, to relate to and predict eating disorder symptoms and outcomes.

Methods: We examined associations between self-reported self-image and ED symptoms in three groups of 16–25year old females: healthy (N = 388), non help-seeking (N = 227) and clinical (N = 6384). Analyses were divided intoage groups of 16–18 and 19–25 years, and the patient sample was divided into diagnostic groups.

Results: Stepwise regressions with self-image aspects as independent variables and eating disorder symptoms asdependent showed that low self-love/acceptance and high self-blame were associated with more eating disordersymptoms in all groups, except older patients with bulimia nervosa where self-hate also contributed. Associationswere generally weaker in the healthy groups and the older samples.

Conclusions: We put forward that older age, low desirability of symptoms, poorly working symptoms, and beingacknowledged as ill, may weaken the association, with implications for treatment and prevention.
