Identifying women at highest risk within a high-risk sample would allow for focusing of preventive resources and also suggests different etiologies. METHOD A longitudinal cohort study over 3 years in a high-risk sample of 236 college-age(More)

Eighty-three patients, 47 with AN and 36 with BN, were assessed at pre-treatment, at the end of the day(More)
BACKGROUND Women reporting initial eating disorder (ED) symptoms are at highest risk for the development of an eating disorder. Preventive interventions should, therefore, be specifically tailored for this subgroup. AIMS To adapt and evaluate the effects of the Internet-based prevention program "Student Bodies™" for women with symptoms of disordered(More)

The purpose of this study was to examine threat-related AB in patients with ANand healthy control participants (HC) and the relationship between AB and eating(More)
OBJECTIVE Women reporting subclinical eating disorder (ED) symptoms are at higher risk for the development of an ED. Preventive interventions should therefore be specifically tailored for this subgroup. Accordingly, the aim of this pilot study was to test the feasibility of the adapted Internet-based prevention program "Student Bodies™" for women with(More)
