Description

COVID-19 has introduced heightened concern for disordered eating (DE) behaviors. Past research has also connected emotional regulation difficulties and DE behaviors in emerging female adults females. However, these variables have not been explored in relation to COVID-19-related stress. The current study examines COVID-19-related stress in the relationship between emotional regulation difficulties and DE in emerging female adults. Data collection from female undergraduate students (N = 378) found COVID-19-related stress mediates the relationship between emotional regulation difficulties and DE. Current study findings suggest COVID-19-related stress may play an important role in the relationship between emotional regulation difficulties and DE in emerging female adults.
