Maternal psychopathology and child risk factors in infantile anorexia.
Ammaniti M, et al.
Int J Eat Disord. 2010 Apr;43(3):233-40.
OBJECTIVE: This study examines a transactional and multirisk model for Infantile Anorexia (IA) and investigates the contributions of the parent, the child, and dyadic interactional variables related to this feeding disorder.
METHOD: The sample consisted of 371 mother-child pairs (children aged 6-36 months), of which 187 pairs of mothers and normally developing children (ND-group), and 184 mothers and IA children. All dyads were videotaped during feeding; mothers completed questionnaires assessing their psychological profiles and eating attitudes, as well as their children’s temperament and emotional/ behavioral functioning.
RESULTS: Analyses revealed that the IA-group showed higher scores in symptomatic characteristics both of the mother and of the child, and dysfunctional interactions during feeding as compared with the ND-group. Further analyses revealed that both child and maternal characteristics are significant predictors of dyadic interactional conflict.
DISCUSSION: Results confirm that a multidimensional assessment is critical in the evaluation of IA.
