Emotional instability as a trait risk factor for eating disorder behaviors in adolescents: Sex differences in a large-scale prospective study.

CONCLUSIONS: Binge eating and purging are common in female and male adolescents. Early temperament/personality factors related to difficulty regulating emotions were predictive of later adolescent eating disorder behaviors. Results have important clinical implications for eating disorder prevention and intervention. PMID: 31379310 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion It is clear that clinically, there is still much to be learnt about alexithymia and its relationship with a range of related phenomena. Firstly, is alexithymia a continuous and stable trait independent of psychological or somatic symptomology that is developed during childhood? Or is it instead a reactive state induced by trauma and distress at any age, which serves to defend against intense and upsetting emotions? This impacts on treatment options. For example, should we be focussing on early childhood interventions which target the child's emotional environment and parenting to encourage emotional exp...

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is characterized by affect dysregulation, self-disturbances, and behavioral and interpersonal dysregulation (American Psychiatric Association, 2013; Keng et al., 2018). The prevalence rates of BPD are estimated to be about 20% of all psychiatric inpatients, 10% of outpatients, and 2% of the general population (American Psychiatric Association, 2013; Frances and Widiger, 1986; Gunderson, 1984; Park and Park, 1997; Swartz et al., 1989). Individuals with BPD or subclinical BPD often report engaging in a wide variety of maladaptive behaviors, such as nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI; Brown et...

As a relatively new and still poorly recognized concept, few people come to therapy identifying as suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). As a rule, a diagnosis of C-PTSD comes only after the process of self-discovery in therapy has begun. When people suffering from C-PTSD are referred to a therapist, or decide to seek help for themselves, it is usually because they are seeking help for one of its symptoms, including dissociative episodes, problems forming relationships, and alcohol or substance abuse. One of the more common issues that leads to the discovery of C-PTSD is the presence of an eating ...

The Five-Factor Borderline Inventory Short Form (FFBI-SF) is a 48-item dimensional measure of borderline personality disorder (BPD) that was developed from the Five-factor model (FFM). Previous research has examined the relationships of the FFBI-SF to the FFM and BPD. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the relationship of FFBI-SF scales with behavioral outcomes, such as self-injury, physical fights, panic symptoms, promiscuous sex, theft, attempted suicide, reckless driving, and binge eating. A potential advantage of the FFBI-SF, relative to other measures of BPD, is the provision of subscales, which provi...

Borderline personality disorder is a personality disorder that is characterized by a recurring, long-standing pattern of having unstable relationships with others — romantic, friendships and with family members. It’s marked by impulsivity in decision-making. People with borderline personality disorder often swing from one emotion to another easily and quickly, and their self-image changes just as often. If there’s an overarching defining characteristic of someone who suffers from borderline personality disorder, it’s that they often seem like they are ping-ponging back and forth between everything ...

This study involved 76 female patients with eating disorders who were treated at the Kyoto University Hospital between July and August, 2010, who answered questionnaires about SHBs, eating attitudes, tendency to dissociate, and attachment style. Some of the participants (22.4%) had other psychiatric disorders in addition to eating disorders, including borderline personality disorder, dissociative disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Of the participants without comorbidity, 23.7% had engaged in SHBs in the past 3 months. Participants with comorbidity tended to dissociate significantly more than participants without ...
