Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Gastrointestinal diseases, placing themselves at the top of the scale in terms of incidence, prevalence, chronicity and hospitalization, represent a topic of increasing attention in a biopsychosocial perspective. This is especially true for functional disorders, which do not present any evidence of organic nature and which are more connected to psychosocial dimensions. In this paper we took into consideration the relational experiences of subjects suffering from gastrointestinal pathology, specifically assessing the perception of social support, the degree of closeness with emotionally significant people and the dyadic coping strategies. The study involved 104 patients suffering from digestive, organic and functional diseases, starting from the hypothesis that the experiences of subjects with organic disorder differ in some relational variables from those who present a functional disorder. The results confirm the hypothesis that the support is judged satisfactory, albeit in the presence of different relational experiences: the subjects affected by organic disease offer a coherent representation of bonds, characterized by positivity and ability to adequately and jointly cope with the stress connected to the disease, subjects with functional disorders - in the face of a positive judgment on the support - present a relational configuration full of ambivalent aspects.
