Keywords and Subject Headings
Disordered eating, attachment, body dissatisfaction
This study will examine the relationship between attachment patterns and disordered eating, and whether body dissatisfaction impacts this relationship. This is a correlational design. Emphasis will be placed on gender in this sample because past research has not focused on studying males. It is expected that a relationship between insecure attachment patterns and disordered eating will be found, and that body dissatisfaction will impact how disordered eating and attachment patterns are related.
