Journal of Counseling & Development, v75 n2 p138-44 Nov-Dec 1996
Examines personality correlates (obsessiveness, dependency, self-directed hostility and assertiveness) of anorexic symptomatology.

Findings are discussed in relation to other researchers' conceptions of the anorexic personality. Implications for therapeutic interventions are provided. (RJM)
