Abstract

The construct of expressed emotion is regarded as one of the most important predictors of the course of schizophrenia and has also proven to be a predictor of the course of depressive disorders, psychosomatic disorders and physical illness. Despite its clinical significance, the utility of the EE-construct has been limited since measurement by interview is time-consuming,and to date only applicable to psychotic illness. Questionnaires as a practicable alternative to the structured interview are also mostly applicable solely to psychotic disorders. One exception is the Family Emotional Involvement and Criticism Scale (FEICS, Shields et al.) [1, 2]. This questionnaire allows a general assessment of EE and thus a practical application of EE to the general area of family research. in a sample of n = 202 patients, the German version of this instrument proved to be reliable in our research. The two-factor structure of the original American version was replicated. We found good correlation between the measured factors, and clinical and other diagnostic markers particular to family pathology. This questionnaire istherefore a brief, reliable and valid instrument for measuring EE in many disorders.
