College Student Binge Eating: Insecure Attachment and Emotion Regulation
Han, Suejung; Pistole, M. Carole
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n1 p16-29 Jan 2014
Because college students who have accomplished developmental tasks less effectively may be at risk for detrimental behavior such as binge eating, we examined emotion regulation as a mediator of attachment insecurity and binge eating. Based on undergraduate and graduate student responses to a Web-based survey ("N" = 381), structural equation modeling revealed that attachment insecurity and binge eating were associated and mediated by emotion regulation. Implications for college student counseling and development are discussed.
