A study of 94 college students supported the hypothesis that women with eating disorders experience more shame and guilt in relation to eating than do either normal or depressed women, and that such shame and guilt differentiate the eating disorders from other psychopathology. Findings revealed an apparent difference in the nature of the depression experienced by eating disordered women and that of depressed women without such disorders. Developmental and clinical implications are discussed.
