Obésité infantile et 'style causal' : étude comparative entre un groupe d'enfants obèses et un groupe d'enfants témoins de poids normal

Abstract : This article is interested in the style of causal attribution of the obese children. With this intention, 25 obese children resulting from a service of pediatry and 25 children of standard weights recruited in a school establishment of the area native of the Moselle region were evaluated using the questionnaire of causal style for child of Pierrehumbert et al. (Annee Psychol 1987;87:395–416). The assumption according to which the obese children would have a style of attribution causal more external than the children of standard weight was not checked. However, the two populations are distinguished significantly with regard to nature from the events (negative to be made thunder or positive congratulations). The obese children blame themselves significantly more than their pars of standard weight, and consider only very seldom that they are responsible for their successes. These results are discussed in terms of brittleness of the population of obese children and stress the importance of a psychological follow-up associated the medical assumption of responsibility.
