KEY PRACTITIONER MESSAGE: The current study explores an innovative comprehensive model based on social rank theory to understand eating disorders' symptoms in women. A mentality focused on ranking, shame and competition predicts body image dissatisfaction. This ranking-focused mentality, along with body image dissatisfaction, leads to drive for thinness through increased self-criticism and decreased self-compassion. These findings support the emergent psychotherapeutic approaches for eating disorders that target self-criticism and self-compassion.
