Forty-one eating-disordered females completed the measures of childhood invalidating experiences and core beliefs.
Such core beliefs were most closely related to the individuals' perceptions of having grown up in a 'chaotic' family environment.

The present study examines parent and adolescent outcomes of family-based therapy as well as the role of parental self-efficacy in relation to adolescent eating disorder, depressed mood and anxiety symptoms.
Forty-nine adolescents and their parents completed a series of measures at assessment, at 3-month post-assessment and at 6-month follow-up.
This occurs when a child is led to believe that his or her feelings, thoughts and perceptions are not real or do not matter.
Explaining those core beliefs may depend on understanding the individual's experiences of invalidation in early years.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is primarily a disorder of the emotion regulation system.
BPD results from a biological predisposition to emotional dysregulation combined with certain dysfunctional (invalidating) environments which interact over time.
It can be hypothesised that invalidating environments in childhood influence the negative core beliefs that are found in the eating disorders.
This study of eating-disordered women aimed to test the relationships between perceived childhood invalidating environments and negative core beliefs.
