A group of 24 normal weight bulimics and 13 bulimic anorexics were compared with each other and a normal control group (n = 41) on two selfreport measures of family functioning (Family Environment Scale and Family Dynamics Survey). The two bulimic groups perceived their families as more dysfunctional than did the normal control group on the dimensions of cohesion, expressiveness, conflict, recreational orientation, emotional support, communication, and need for counseling. There were few significant differences in the family perceptions of the two bulimic groups.
