Personal biases exhibited by mental health professionals can adversely affect treatment outcomes (Servais & Saunders, 2007; Currin, Waller, & Schmidt, 2009). Eating disorders are often stigmatized and ultimately marginalized even within professional realms, thereby presenting (1) an unnecessary barrier to treatment and (2) adverse consequences for affected individuals (Hackler, Vogel, & Wade, 2010; Roehrig & McLean, 2010; Ebneter, Latner, & O'Brien, 2011; Walker & Lloyd, 2011). Conjunctively, the presence of weight discrimination has increased drastically in recent years. (Bannon, Hunter-Reel, Wilson, & Karlin, 2009). This study assessed levels of weight-related and eating disorder-related stigma in a sample of clinical psychology doctoral students.
