The Relationship of Gender and Family Environment to Eating Disorder Risk in Adolescents.
Felker, Kenneth R.; Stivers, Cathie
Adolescence, v29 n116 p821-34 Win 1994
Surveys measured components of family environment and adolescents' risk of developing anorexia nervosa or bulimia. Females displayed a greater risk than males for developing eating disorders. Lower cohesion, expressiveness, independence, and organization in the family implied a higher eating disorder risk, as did greater conflict and control. (RJM)
