OBJECTIVE The primary goal of this study was to test a culturally specific model of binge eating in African American female trauma survivors, investigating potential mechanisms through which trauma exposure and distress were related to binge eating symptomatology. METHOD Participants were 179 African American female trauma survivors who completed(More)
The relationship between partner violence and physical health symptoms is well-established. Although some researchers have theorized that the physical health effects of partner violence may be worse for ethnic minority women, there is little research addressing this topic. The current study examined whether African American women demonstrate a differential(More)
The present study investigated whether trauma, stress, and discriminatory experiences influenced binge eating among 93 African American and 85 Caucasian women. Trauma and stress were significantly related to binge eating for both groups, although the stress- binge eating relationship was stronger for Caucasian women. Ethnicity did not moderate the(More)
Although women of color have been hypothesized to experience double jeopardy in the form of chronic exposure to both race-based (RBD) and gender-based discrimination (GBD; Beal, 1970), few empirical investigations that examine both RBD and GBD in multiple comparison groups have been conducted. In addition to being one of the only simultaneous examinations(More)
This research investigated cultural factors and expectancies about eating and thinness among 93 African American women. Participants completed the Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure (MEIM), Eating Expectancy Inventory and Thinness and Restricting Expectancy Inventory (EEI, TREI), and Eating Attitudes Test (EAT). The MEIM assessed affective and developmental(More)
Vigorous exercise and fasting are commonly used compensatory behaviors. However, it is unknown how non-clinical individuals who engage in one or both of these compensatory behaviors differ from one another. This research compared women who engaged in both fasting and vigorous exercise as compensatory strategies (n=76) with women who engaged in either(More)
We present a new approach to binary phase shift keying (BPSK) channel equalization that uses the aggregating method of bagging to improve its ability to handle noise and estimation errors. Bagging forms a single equalized output from an average of N equalizers that are run on independently permuted sets of the received signal. We show in simulations that(More)
