The role of the family in the development and maintenance of eating disorders is frequently cited in the literature, however, the publications present common methodological issues, including the use of diverse family assessment tools with vague or missing reports of psychometric properties. Further, variables specific to eating disorder families are not being captured in available tools. 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 tool 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 sample of 59 parents from separate families of individuals treated in an eating disorders program. Tests of internal consistency demonstrated adequate reliability of the instrument, while factor analysis supported the construct validity of a reduced 39-item tool. Results advance initial reliability and validity of the FEEDS as a measure of eating disorder family functioning. Following additional studies, 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.
