Mutuality, Self-Silencing, and Disordered Eating in College Women
Wechsler, Lisa S.; Riggs, Shelley A.; Stabb, Sally D.; Marshall, David M.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v21 n1 p51-76 Aug 2006
The current study examined patterns of association among mutuality, self-silencing, and disordered eating in an ethnically diverse sample of college women (N = 149). Partner mutuality and overall self-silencing were negatively correlated and together were associated with six disordered eating indices. All four self-silencing subscales were associated with disordered eating patterns. For example, external self-perception was associated with drive for thinness, bulimia, body dissatisfaction, and interoceptive awareness. Implications of the findings for college counselors are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
