Description

This research will examine the how helicopter-parenting style affects individuals diagnosed with an eating disorder. This study will also look for connection between anxiety and eating disorder symptoms. A sample of 100 women between the ages of 18 and 25 who have an eating disorder diagnosis will be recruited from an outpatient facility in the Seattle area. Our hypothesis is that helicopter parenting fosters unhealthy coping skills in children, which is reflected by increased frequency of eating disorder symptoms. An ANOVA will be used to analyze data from the EAT-26, Parental Attachment Questionnaire, and The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale.
