Language style matching and treatment outcome in anorexia nervosa

LIWC Research Series:


Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice for anorexia nervosa (AN) but mechanisms of action are still largely unknown. Growing research suggests that synchrony between patient and therapist contributes to treat- ment success. Adding to this literature, this study examined the association between language style matching (LSM) among patient and therapist as an indicator of interpersonal (verbal) synchrony and treatment outcome in AN.


Preliminary findings suggest that verbal synchrony be- tween patients with AN and their therapists contributes to favourable treat- ment outcomes. High levels of LSM may reflect therapeutic empathy, cooperation, or mutual positive perception.
