Disease relevance of Self Disclosure

  • METHOD: Women with high and low scores on the Bulimia Test Revised (BULIT-R) were compared on self-disclosure about three topics (daily activities, eating, and weight) and sexual and relationship issues to three targets (mother, friend, and partner) [1].

High impact information on Self Disclosure

  • OBJECTIVE: Past research has demonstrated that self-disclosure of traumatic or secretive information produces observable health benefits [2].
  • Much of the existing literature on psychotherapist self-disclosure has been with White or European American individuals [3].
  • Self-disclosure was negatively correlated with both occupational stress and psychological symptoms of stress for disclosures of personal feelings and social relationships when disclosing to a Best Friend, indicating a stress-buffering effect [4].
  • Quadratic, inverted-U relationships were hypothesized for the self-disclosure and CPI scales, but by and large they were not found [5].
