    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study was to describe the role of family and interpersonal relationships in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Subjects who met criteria for the two most recognized eating disorders according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fourth Edition) at the Massachusetts General Hospital Eating Disorders Unit (MGH EDU) presented for an entry interview to participate in a prospective, naturalistic, longitudinal study on eating disorders. The participants were asked to rank-order interpersonal relationships with parent(s), sibling(s), spouse/mate, and friend(s). Interpersonal relationships were rank-ordered using a Likert scale. Recovery from the eating disorder was defined according to a psychiatric status rating scale. The sample consisted of 225 women patients who sought treatment at the MGH EDU from October, 1987 to June, 1990. The participants were administered the LIFE EAT II, the Eating Disorder Longitudinal Interval Follow-up Evaluation, a structured interview developed for the study. The literature review provided the theoretical basis for the analysis of the connection between relational and self development and the bulimic symptom. Statistical analysis focused on assessing differences in family and interpersonal relationships across the three intake groups: restrictive anorexia nervosa, anorexia nervosa with bulimic symptoms and bulimia nervosa. The Chi-Square Tests of Association used for two or more independent variables was employed. Positive relationships with a parent(s) (p <.04), positive relationships with a spouse/mate (p <.04), and negative relationships with friend(s) (p <.03) were statistically significant across the three intake groups at the time of recovery from the disorder. The findings of this study offer support for further descriptive analyses of family and interpersonal relationships in the pursuit of understanding of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
