About the Course:
Objective: We examined the mediating role of self-criticism in the relation between childhood maltreatment and both depressive symptoms and body dissatisfaction in patients with binge eating disorder (BED).
Method: Participants were 170 BED patients who completed measures of childhood maltreatment, self-criticism, self-esteem, depressive symptoms, and body dissatisfaction.
Results: Specific forms of childhood maltreatment (emotional abuse, sexual abuse) were significantly associated with body dissatisfaction. Path analyses demonstrated that self-criticism fully mediated the relation between emotional abuse and both depressive symptoms and body dissatisfaction. Specificity for the mediating role of self-criticism was demonstrated in comparison to other potential mediators (low self-esteem) and alternative competing mediation models.
Conclusion: These results highlight self-criticism as a potential mechanism through which certain forms of childhood maltreatment may be associated with depressive symptoms and body dissatisfaction in BED patients.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Childhood Maltreatment, Depressive Symptoms, and Body Dissatisfaction in Patients With Binge Eating Disorder: The Mediating Role of Self-criticism created by David Dunkley, Ph.D.,, Robin M. Masheb, and Carlos M. Grilo, PhD
