|Abstract:||Since the 1970s there has been much interest in the precipitants of disordered eating. Recently, it has been suggested that it might occur as a result of a pervasive negative view of self and high standards for self-achievement. This poster describes an experimental paradigm to test this hypothesis. Specifically, the study aims to determine the extent to which implicitly- and explicitly-measured self-loathing, and high standard for self, beliefs can prospectively predict disordered eating in an at-risk group of female students.|
