Predicting Eating Disorder Continuum Groups: Hardiness and College Adjustment.
Simon-Boyd, Gail D.; Bieschke, Kathleen J.
This study examined relationships between hardiness, college adjustment (academic adjustment, social adjustment, personal-emotional adjustment, institutional attachment) and eating disorder (ED) continuum categories in 122 female and 20 male college students. Students who exhibited a higher level of personal-emotional adjustment (PEA) to college reported less disordered eating and greater hardiness. As hypothesized, PEA significantly predicted ED category (asymptomatic, symptomatic, eating disordered) for females, and overall college adjustment significantly predicted ED category for a combined sub-sample of 20 females and 20 males.
