Friedlander, Myrna L.; Siegel, Sheri M.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v37 n1 p74-78 Jan 1990
Tested theoretical link between difficulties with separation-individuation and cognitive-behavioral indicators characteristic of anorexia nervosa and bulimia. Assessed 124 college women using three self-report measures. Results suggest strong relation between 2 sets of variables and support theoretical assertions about factors that contribute to eating disorders and about consequences for women who fail to achieve psychological separateness.
