The role of the family in the development and maintenance of eating disorders is frequently cited in the literature, however, publications present common methodological issues, including the use of diverse family assessment instruments with inadequate psychometric properties. Further, variables specific to eating disorder families are not being captured in available instruments. The Modeling and Role-Modeling theory advanced by Erickson, Tomlin, and Swain (1983) was employed to structure the Family Experience with Eating Disorders Scale (FEEDS), a 53-item instrument measuring variables specific to eating disorder families. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of reliability and validity of the FEEDS with a multi-site sample comprised of three groups: 146 parents of individuals with eating disorders, 35 parents of adolescents with psychiatric disorders, and 100 parents of college students with no known psychiatric illness. Structural equation modeling supported the construct validity of a reduced 30-item instrument and confirmed three higher order measurement models of Family Relationships, Interactional Skills, and Modeling of Weight, Shape, and Eating. A provisional degree of known groups validity was established using MANOVA. Tests of internal consistency and test-retest at two weeks demonstrated adequate reliability. Psychometric results from this study were consistent with results from a pilot sample of 59 eating disorder families, lending additional support for the reliability and validity of the instrument. The FEEDS could be a useful adjunct to clinical assessment and could be instrumental in designing nursing interventions and measuring treatment outcomes for eating disorder families.
