Stressful life events may be a risk factor for developing AN. Studies investigating the relationship between sexual abuse and eating disorders have produced highly discrepant results (Connors & Morse, 1993). Alow rate of sexual abuse has been reported among anorectic restrictors relative to either bulimic anorectics or to normal-weight bulimics (Waller, Halek, & Crisp, 1993).

Normative developmental events, such as the onset of puberty, departure from home, or a change of school, can precipitate an eating disorder. Adverse life events, such as the death of a close relative, the breakup of a relationship, or illness, may also precipitate an eating disorder (Tobin et al., 1995).
