Eating Disturbances and Incest.
Wonderlich, Stephen; And Others
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v11 n2 p195-207 Jun 1996
Studies the relationship between incest and bulimic behavior. Indicates incest victims are significantly more likely to binge, vomit, experience a loss of control over eating, and report body dissatisfaction than control subjects. Suggests incest may increase risk of bulimic behavior, and that eating problems may be a part of a larger pattern of dysfunctional efforts to regulate trauma-related emotional distress. (KW)
