CUNHA, Kainara Silva da; MACHADO, Wagner de Lara; ANDRADE, André Luiz Monezi  y  ENUMO, Sônia Regina Fiorim. Family psychosocial risk, coping with child obesity treatment and parental feeding control. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.3, pp. 11-21. ISSN 1982-1247.

This study evaluated parental variables involved in the outpatient treatment of overweight/obese children, in variables included food control, stressors and coping, as well as family psychosocial risk. Nineteen caregivers filled out instruments such as Participant Characterization, Parental Coping Interview, Psychosocial Assessment Tool 2.0 (PAT 2.0) and Comprehensive Feeding Practices Questionnaire (CFPQ). Most families showed medium-high psychosocial risk (Targeted = 52.6%, Clinical = 21.1%) and the most common parental practice of food control was to Encourage Balance and Variety, and the Restriction of food. Food control is the major stressor for caregivers, who react with anger and sadness, despite having a more adaptive coping. The results indicate the need for specific interventions for this population at risk.
