Perceived expressed emotion in anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.
Compr Psychiatry. 2010 Jul-Aug; 51(4):401-5.CP

Abstract

The aim of this study was to verify the level of expressed emotion (EE) as perceived from patients with an eating disorder (ED). The Italian translation of the Level of Expressed Emotion Scale was administered to 63 female patients with Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder and 63 control subjects, according to a case-control procedure. Patients with ED showed higher level of perceived EE than controls, whereas no significant differences were observed when comparing the 3 patient subgroups. The level of perceived EE was found to be independent of age, person who has been most influential in the patient's life, amount of contacts, and duration of treatment. Different associations between eating disorder psychopathology and EE were found, suggesting a close relationship between the emotional response and tolerance of influential person and the dysfunctional attitudes regarding eating, weight, and body shape.
