    • Abstract:
      Previous research has documented women with bulimia report more angry affect than women without eating disturbances (e.g. Mizes, 1988a). Anger has also been pinpointed as having a role in establishing and maintaining the binge purge cycle (e.g., Ganley, 1989). This study expanded on prior research by using DSM-IV criteria, by studying sub-clinical populations in addition to a clinical group, by using the Trait Anger Scale (Spielberger, 1988) instead of sub-scales of general psychopathology measures, and by utilizing a measure of many forms of anger expression (Deffenbacher, 1995). Female college students (n = 355) were screened for DSM-IV criteria. Six (1.7%) met full criteria, 38 (10.7%) were placed in the sub-clinical group, and 52 (14.6%) controls without bingeing or purging behaviors were identified. Because of the small size of the bulimic group, these women were excluded from further analyses. Sub-clinicals reported more trait anger and were more likely to try to control their anger, to suppress their anger, to be internally judgmental (In-Critical), to verbally assault others, and to physically assault objects when angry. Anger emerged as a primary variable in discriminant analyses along with Beck Depression Inventory scores, Trait Anxiety Inventory scores, and the In-Critical anger expression style in predicting group membership. To further examine the full spectrum of eating disturbances, exploratory analyses were completed between sub-clinicals using a variety of purging mechanisms (n = 22), sub-clinicals solely using excessive exercise ( n =16), and controls (n = 52). Excessive exercisers reported more anger than controls, and both sub-clinical groups had higher means than controls on the In-Critical scale. The sub-clinical group using a variety of compensatory behaviors indicated they were more likely than excessive exercisers and controls to physically assault others when angry. The mixed sub-clinical group also endorsed higher levels of depression and anxiety than the exercise only group. The In-Critical style, depression, and anxiety emerged as the most effective predictive variables in discriminant analyses. Results were discussed in relation to future research in anger and bulimia as well as their implications for eating disorder treatment. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
