The present effectiveness trial tested whether this program…

Stice, Eric; Presnell, Katherine; Shaw, Heather; Rohde, Paul – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 2005
Because little is known about risk factors for obesity, the authors tested whether certain psychological and behavioral variables predicted future onset of obesity. The authors used data from a prospective study of 496 adolescent girls who completed a baseline assessment at age 11-15 years and 4 annual follow-ups. Self-reported dietary restraint,…

Stice, Eric; Burton, Emily M.; Shaw, Heather – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 2004
To elucidate the processes that contribute to the comorbidity between bulimic pathology, depression, and substance abuse, the authors tested the temporal relations between these disturbances with prospective data from adolescent girls (N = 496). Multivariate analyses indicated that depressive symptoms predicted onset of bulimic pathology but not…
