Course Description: Eating disorders pose risks to mental and physical health. The authors of the present study investigated the role of body esteem in risk for eating disorders, with social appearance functioning as a mediator and emotional intelligence functioning as a moderator. The authors conducted a quantitative study using data from 2,509 high school students in China. The results supported social appearance anxiety as a mediator of the relationship between body esteem and eating disorder risk. The results also supported emotional intelligence as a moderator of the relationship between body esteem and social appearance anxiety, and body esteem and eating disorder risk, but not between social appearance anxiety and eating disorder risk. The authors suggest that enhancing emotional intelligence may prevent the development of eating disorders. Future research should explore these relationships over time, or within the context of an emotional intelligence enhancement intervention for adolescents.
