Previous research has investigated the psychopathology in eating disordered behavior through family and peer-related learning experiences as well as temperament. The reliable differentiation of bingeing/purging(BN) and restricting(AN) ED groups is important clinically, as distinct etiological factors may underlie different symptom patterns and in turn call for different intervention strategies (Tchanturia, Davies, & Campbell, 2007; Westen & Harnden-Fischer, 2001). The purpose of this study was to replicate past findings and analyze how all of these variables relate to differentiating between AN and BN symptoms groups.
