VEGA, Verónica C.; PICCINI, Marta; BARRIONUEVO, José A.  and  TOCCI, Romina F.. Depression and eating disorders in a non clinical sample of adolescent women. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp.103-114. ISSN 1851-1686.

The aim of the work was to research of the association between Depression and Eating Disorders in a non clinical female sample of 700 adolescents between 12 and 21 years old. During 2008, 2 questionnaires were self-administered: the Beck Depression Inventory-BDI (Beck, 1972) and the Eating Attitude Test-EAT-26 (Garner, Olmsted, Bohr& Garfinkel, 1982) in state schools of a suburb of Buenos Aires. Results show a high correlation between the test of Beck and the Eating Attitude Test. The relation between both variables (depression and TCA) in each phase of the adolescence (early, middle and late) was also analyzed; confirming the correlations in the 3 segments. Finally it was tracked which items of the test of Beck were the best predictors of each scale of the EAT-26 and the total of this questionnaire. Conclusions: Results confirm association between both disorders. Suggestion of studying comorbidity is been made.
