Project: Emotion regulation in eating disorders: an examination of underlying mechanisms
- project duration
- 01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-12
- Little is known with regard to the mechanisms underlying the relation between attachment and eating disorder (symptoms). Therefore, it is the central goal of the current project to investigate whether affective regulation problems and maladaptive cognitive schemas mediate the association between disturbances in the parent-child relationship (insecure attachment) and eating disorder symptoms in adolescents.
