Abstract

This research examined the relations between aspects of self-concept and various stages of eating disorder recovery. individuals formerly seen for an eating disorder at a Midwestern clinic were categorized as having an active eating disorder (n = 53) or as partially recovered (n = 15) or as fully recovered (n = 20) using a comprehensive recovery definition whereby full recovery included physical, behavioral, and psychological recovery and partial recovery included only physical and behavioral recovery. the self-concepts of these groups were compared to each other and to 67 controls. the fully recovered group had higher self-esteem, higher.
