Expressed Emotion (EE) is a measure of family interaction that has been shown to be useful for the investigation of many psychiatric disorders. This paper describes why it is appropriate to use it for the investigation of eating disorders. There is discussion of the findings that the levels tend to vary between the different eating disorders. The relationship between EE and treatment response is discussed. Suggestions are made for further research.
