The role of the perception of family environment in relation to body dissatisfaction, disordered eating and difficulties in close relationships
TLDR
Difficulties in close relationships, body dissatisfaction and disordered eating were significantly higher in invalidating families than in validating families, and perceptions of invalidation in childhood may be associated with eating disorder symptomatology.
Attitudes towards emotional expression mediate the relationship between childhood invalidation and adult eating concern.
TLDR
It is suggested that targeting the individual's attitude towards emotional expression might reduce eating attitudes among women who have experienced an invalidating childhood environment.
Vulnerable narcissism as a mediator of the relationship between perceived parental invalidation and eating disorder pathology
TLDR
The findings indicate that vulnerable narcissism is more strongly associated with eating disorder pathology as opposed to grandiose narcissism and help to further elucidate the mechanisms via which parental invalidation might exert its negative effect on Eating disorder pathology.
Eating behavior and psychological profile: associations between daughters with distinct eating disorders and their mothers
TLDR
The study concluded that the associations between mothers and daughters with distinct eating disorders varied depending on the specific diagnosis of the daughter, indicating it is necessary to analyze them individually, given that there may be different implications for treatment.
Female Adolescents with Eating Disorders, Parental Psychopathological Risk and Family Functioning
TLDR
These findings may guide clinical interventions as they suggest that distinct maternal psychopathological symptoms can be associated with a variety of clinical configurations in their offspring, whereas paternal psychopathological risk may be present in adolescents suffering from all forms of eating disorders.

Development of a measure to assess invalidating childhood environments in the eating disorders.
Childhood experiences of being bullied and teased in the eating disorders.
TLDR
There was a specific relationship between teasing by peers about appearance and body dissatisfaction, which was mediated by shame, which support existing evidence regarding the associations between trauma and eating pathology and suggest that clinicians need to consider the potential role of teased by peersabout appearance and shame when understanding body dissatisfaction.
Distress tolerance in the eating disorders.
The role of general family environment and sexual and physical abuse in the origins of eating disorders
TLDR
Future research in the area of family factors or childhood trauma in eating disorders needs to get away from mere ‘head counts’ and needs to focus more strongly on the mediators between abuse and neglect and the development of eating disorders and also on the relative importance offamily factors compared with other aetiological factors.
Childhood emotional abuse and eating psychopathology.
The relationship between parental bonding and core beliefs in anorexic and bulimic women.
TLDR
Clinically, these findings provide insight into the possible origins or core beliefs, and hence might aid their challenge in schema-focused cognitive therapy, among anorexic and bulimic women.
Eating disorders and perceived relationships with parents
TLDR
The present report is the third and largest such study, contrasting 98 patients with anorexic and bulimic eating disorders and 242 comparison subjects, and finding that eating-disordered patients recalled that both parents were lower in perceived care/warmth and that their fathers (but not their mothers) were more overprotective.
The Role of Emotional Abuse in the Eating Disorders: Implications for Treatment
TLDR
Cognitive-behavioral approaches are outlined for work with eating-disordered patients with a history of emotional abuse, focusing on addressing the conditional assumptions about the acceptability of emotions and the core beliefs that underpin the emotional difficulties.
Childhood abuse and neglect and loss of self-regulation.
TLDR
It is shown that most abused and neglected children develop disorganized attachment patterns, and affective dysregulation can be mitigated by safe attachments, secure meaning schemes, and pharmacological interventions that enhance the predictability of somatic responses to stress.
