Riassunto analitico
This work discusses data obtained from an observational project
proposed within the framework of a clinical protocol arranged
between the operating units of Psychiatry 2 and Internal Medicine 3.
Since 2009, dedicated liaison psychiatrists and residents have
screened candidates to obesity surgery from the inpatient medical
ward. Patients who gave specific written consent were assessed
through a psychometric battery comprising structured and semi-structured clinical interviews, along with self-report instruments. In light of the growing literature suggesting a multidimensional approach to obesity surgery evaluation, we propose to assess dimensional psychopathology measures in a sample of obese patients undergoing a diagnostic evaluation protocol for bariatric intervention. Our evaluation, relying mainly on dimensional constructs, DSM-V
categories, sociodemographic and antropometric variables has not
pointed out solid predictors for severity of obesity or
psychopathological features associated to obesity. Our hypothesis focused in particular on the possible presence of elements of separation anxiety and their correlation with the development of obesity in adults.
