Forget what you’ve heard about mean girls; new research from Florida State University finds girls are far more likely than boys to notice instances of bullying and interpret them as emergencies. Those findings were recently published in the Journal of Early Adolescence. Lyndsay Jenkins is an assistant professor in the FSU College of Education and lead author on the study.

Jenkins’ study delves deeper into the role of gender and bullying by using the Bystander Intervention Model created by social psychologist Bibb Latane and John Darley as the basis of the study. The model includes five steps to examine the actions of bystanders in bullying. Those steps are noticing the event, interpreting the event as an emergency, accepting responsibility for intervening, knowing how to intervene and then, intervening.

The Six Seductions of Anorexia – Psychology Today

As I explored in this post, one of the metaphorical structures people often use to think and talk about their eating disorder is personification of the illness (a devil on the shoulder, a whispering voice, an invading identity). Having anorexia often does feel like having a dysfunctional relationship, and the dysfunction changes: usually, from mistaken infatuation to fearful collusion in abuse, and sometimes, finally, to still-fearful but determined escape from the relationship that gave you something but took far more from you.
