3015-18:  Application of Mixture Modeling to Characterize Anorexia Nervosa: Integrating Personality Traits and Eating Disorder Psychopathology and Behaviors | Mothers' Mental Health After Release from Incarceration

This mini concurrent session includes two 20-minute presentations (described below) plus Q&A.

Application of Mixture Modeling to Characterize Anorexia Nervosa: Integrating Personality Traits and Eating Disorder Psychopathology and Behaviors
Mixture modeling was used to determine the best-fitting model of anorexia nervosa (AN) based on eating disorder (ED) psychopathology and personality traits, and evaluate the clinical utility of this model. Clinically relevant characterization of AN provides a better understanding of the heterogeneity among this population.  
Presenter:  Karen M. Jennings, PhD, RN, PMHNP-BC
