This retrospective quantitative study examined clinical differences between endurance athletes (e.g. cross-country, track, swimming), aesthetic athletes (e.g. dance, gymnastics, diving, ice skating, cheerleading), ball sport athletes (e.g. softball, basketball, soccer, volleyball), and non-athlete patients presenting for an eating disorder intake assessment. The subject sample was drawn from the population of 13-24 year-old female patients presenting for initial assessment at Park Nicollet's Eating Disorders Institute and Mayo Clinic's outpatient eating disorders program. Patients who provided informed consent were grouped according to the type of formal athletic program in which they participate or placed into the non-athlete group. The non-athlete group was comprised of those subjects who do not participate in formal sport program.Validity correlations are presented in the manual between this scale and other measures of trait-anxiety: the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale, the IPAT ...
