  1. Measures of estimated means (crude/unadjusted) and estimated marginal means (adjusted for covariates) with standard errors (SEs) for the Ego Undercontrol scale – 13 (EUC-13) and the Ego Resiliency scale (ER). Significant differences between groups are calculated using the Bonferroni post hoc test, adjusting for multiple comparisons, * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001
  2. ANr anorexia nervosa restricting, ANbp AN binge eating/purging, AAN atypical AN, BN bulimia nervosa (BN), BPD borderline personality disorder (BPD), NC non-clinical
