Abstract: These results of this study are consistent with theories of eating disorders that highlight the role of family factors in the etiology and maintenance of eating disorders. When 27 young women at risk for eating disorders who scored above the clinical cut-off score on the EDI-II were compared with age and SES matched controls, they were found to obtain more dysfunctional scores on the Family Assessment Device and on ratings of perceived maternal and paternal symptomatology on the SCL-90-R.
