The purpose of this study was to measure congruence in perceptions of family dynamics in eating-disordered adolescents and their parents.
Design and Methods
A pilot sample of 35 matched parent–child dyads completed either the Parent Version or the newly modified Client Version of the Family Experience with Eating Disorders Scale (FEEDS).
Differences between parent and child perceptions on subscale totals were not demonstrated, but statistically significant differences on select items were shown.
The FEEDS offers a systematic way to explore differences and commonalities in perception among family members and to engage the family in treatment.
