This study examined coping and general psychopathology as possible predictors of reduction of eating disorder symptomatology. Assessment took place at pre- and post-treatment for all eating disorder patients (N = 93). Eating pattern and behavior were measured, as well as BMI and general psychopathology. As hypothesized, the coping strategies and comorbidity of respondents at pre-treatment contributed significantly to their outcome scores, and behavior aspects associated with eating disorders. Active coping strategies and low levels of general psychopathol-ogy predicted better outcome scores. This implies that active coping strategies and low levels of accompanying psychopathology at pre-treatment could be indicators of good chances for reduction of eating disorder symptomatology such as emotional eating, bulimia symptomatology, ineffectiveness, and introceptive awareness.
