Abstract

Previous studies have shown a relationship between Inflammatory Bowel Disease and psychological stress. An adverse parenting is recognised as an important risk factor for the development of psychiatric disorders in adulthood. A group of 307 patients with IBD and a group of 307 healthy subjects filled out the questionnaire Parental Bonding Instrument. Patients with IBD perceived their parents’ behaviours characterised by low care and paternal overprotection and the category optimal parenting highly differs in the two samples. This study demonstrated an association between an inadequate parenting and a chronic, physical illness. Those findings are consistent with a grooving literature that links early parental experience to chronic illness.
