Abstract

Research in the eating disorders has begun to identify biases in the processing of threat-related information. The schema model of eating disorders suggests that these processing biases are driven by core belief content. The current paper reviews existing literature on the processing of threat-related information in the eating disorders. In particular, studies examining subliminal processing, biases in attention and memory, cognitive avoidance and attributional biases are reviewed. These studies are described within a framework that accounts for the possible stages of threat processing in the eating disorders. The clinical implications of threat processing in the eating disorders are considered, and suggestions are made for future research in this area.
