Performing Well but not Appreciating it – A Trait Feature of Anorexia Nervosa

Performing Well but not Appreciating it – A Trait Feature of Anorexia Nervosa

In this Papers Podcast, Professor Kerstin von Plessen discusses her co-authored JCPP Advances paper ‘Performing well but not appreciating it – A trait feature of anorexia nervosa’ (https://doi.org/10.1002/jcv2.12194).

There is an overview of the paper, methodology, key findings, and implications for practice.

Discussion points include:

  • What is currently known about the relationship between perfectionism and anorexia nervosa.
  • Insight into a novel behavioural method for measuring perfectionism and why it is important to look beyond self-evaluation reports.
  • What makes self-evaluation reports limited in comparison to the novel behavioural method.
  • The implications of participants, who have recovered from anorexia nervosa, having evaluated their performances significantly more negatively than their respective controls.
  • Implications of findings from clinicians and child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) professionals.

In this series, we speak to authors of papers published in one of ACAMH’s three journals. These are The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry (JCPP)The Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) journal; and JCPP Advances.
