Summary of "Disparities in psychological well-being based on subjective and objective eating disorder recovery statuses, and recovery status concordance."

This research examines how eudaimonic psychological well-being (PWB) relates to variant levels of eating disorder (ED) recovery (full, partial, active ED), both self-defined and objectively determined, and to subjective-objective recovery status concordance. Participants (N = 132; Mage = 30.1) completed an online survey targeting ED symptomology, PWB, and recovery. MANOVAs revealed idiosyncratic relationships between recovery and PWB when objective criteria, subjective perceptions, and concordance were considered. Generally, superior levels of recovery were associated with superior PWB. PWB and clients' perceptions of recovery should be considered during treatment and in establishing a uniform definition of ED recovery.
