Attitudes toward Seeking Professional Help for an Eating Disorder: The Role of Stigma and Anticipated Outcomes
Hackler, Ashley H.; Vogel, David L.; Wade, Nathaniel G.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p424-431 Fall 2010
This study examined the relationship between self-stigma, anticipated risks and benefits associated with seeking counseling, and attitudes toward seeking counseling among college students with disordered eating attitudes and behaviors. The results of hierarchical regression analyses demonstrated that self-stigma and the anticipated risks and benefits significantly predicted attitudes toward counseling for people with disordered eating. In addition, self-stigma had a stronger relationship with men's attitudes toward counseling than with women's, and anticipated benefits had a stronger relationship with women's attitudes toward counseling than with men's.
