Introduction: In the current community, body and keeping it fit is considered a criterion of peoplechr('39')s life. Obesity and being overweight are interferences between body and mind as indicated by research around the world in the field of medicine and psychiatry. Obesity has a reciprocal relationship with emotional pressures, psychological chaos, and psychiatric status of people. The aim of this study was to identify the role of parental bonding on body image of obese and overweight people, who were clients of food clinics in Tehran.
Methods: The study was a descriptive research. The population included all those, who were clients of food clinics of Tehran with medical records. Among them, 55 individuals were chosen by purposive sampling. The tools of data gathering were Parker Tuplingchr('39')s parental bonding instrument and Cashchr('39')s multidimensional body image questionnaire (1990). The analysis of data was conducted using the SPSS 22 software and correlation test with Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA).
Results: The results showed that the style of controlling more than care was a predictor of peoplechr('39')s body image and motherchr('39')s controlling style was more significant than that of the father in predicting body image.
Conclusions: : Family had a great impact on formation of body image. The more people were under the control of their family, the more negative self-image they had and their scores were low. Accordingly, one can prevent extension of worrying and serious nutritional disorders in the future by holding educational courses for families to teach control and identify the dissatisfaction of children with their mental body image at primary stages.
