WIVES' RELATIONSHIPS WITH FOOD AND PATTERNS OF FAMILY DISTRESS
Abstract:Using a framework of efficacy and commitment, this research investigated whether food-related activities and attitudes were significant enough in the lives of women to differentiate among four patterns of family distress (distressed, undistressed, wife-distressed, and husband-distressed families). Data from personal interviews with 155 women indicated efficacy in food preparation, time spent at work, and control over personal eating differentiated among patterns of family distress.
