Description

This study used a systematic review process to synthesize a breadth of literature (30 peer-reviewed articles) focusing on family dynamics as predictors of eating disorders in children. The review is guided by a family systems and attachment framework as well as concepts from the Circumplex model. This study found significant qualitative themes in Family Dynamics that predicted and/or were associated with the development of an eating disorder in children. Additionally, this study provides a review of future directions as well as clinical, educational, and policy implications in accordance with qualitative themes found in the literature.
