COFRE, Alfonso; ANGULO-DIAZ, Pamela  e  RIQUELME-MELLA, Enrique. Anxiety and depression in morbid obesity patients: Short-term effect of a program oriented to the diminution of the symptomatology. Summa psicol. UST (En línea) [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.1, pp. 89-98. ISSN 0718-0446.

Morbid obesity is, by its impact on life quality and physical-psychological health, one of the main topics of interest and research in the field of health. Most intervention programs aimed directly at decreasing body mass excluding or ignoring central dimensions in the disease, such as depression or anxiety. The aim of this article was to raise awareness of the effects on the psychological dimensions of an interdisciplinary program of 10 months duration. Participated 18 persons whose ages ranged between 20 and 60 years (M = 39.5, SD = 9.2), 17 women and 1 man. All were part of the program of support interdisciplinary (multidisciplinary) team working OBEMOB from the Santo Tomas University, located in Temuco, Chile. The results show a decrease, statistically significant, in anxious and depressive symptoms of all participants. The article concludes by reflecting on the scope of the intervention, the theoretical dimensions that may explain the changes, limitations and requirements of future programs in this area.
