Overview

Success in the study and treatment of eating disorders and weight-related problems depends greatly on the efficacy of the instruments used. As the number of available instruments has increased, so has the difficulty in determining which is most appropriate for a specific case or project. Offering a refined and carefully analyzed sampling of relevant material, the Handbook is the first comprehensive guide in this field.

Following the introduction and discussion of such key constructs as binge eating and purging, dietary restraint and body image, the contributors offer critical analyses of the measurement instruments most suitable for study in those areas. Each instrument is then evaluated in terms of its development,

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Daniel J. Goodman, MA (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This is a compendium of measurement instruments in the areas of obesity, eating disorders, and related behaviors. The author has incorporated some of the foremost authorities in these fields to review the available material in their own areas of expertise.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive reference guide to the measurement of eating and weight-related behaviors. The contributors have, in turn, attempted to critically evaluate a broad sampling of instruments in a variety of specific, related domains. The book reviews a tremendous number of assessment methods in some detail. However, it would be more useful to the reader if clear comparisons were articulated regarding the utility of the instruments in a particular area.
Audience: Researchers are this book's primary audience, including graduate students and clinicians. In fact, it contains so much information that anyone interested in conducting investigations of eating or weight-related behaviors would benefit from at least some cursory knowledge of its contents.
Features: Perhaps the greatest asset of this book is that it is a multiauthored book, which has allowed the author to include a formidable group of experts. Second, the organization of each chapter makes it extremely easy to use. Each chapter is very comprehensive, with detailed, pragmatic information on several instruments that would be useful for individuals designing research projects. Finally, Allison has reprinted at least portions of many scales for review by readers.
Assessment: This impressive effort combines a wealth of information with a simple format, making it a very useful research aid for scientists working in this area. Additionally, clinicians would likely benefit from a text such as this when designing or assessing treatment programs to deal with eating, weight, activity, and related issues.

A comprehensive reference guide that offers a refined and carefully analyzed sampling of relevant materials. Following the introduction and discussion of such key constructs as binge eating and purging, dietary restraint, and body image, the contributors offer critical analyses of the measurement instruments most suitable for study in those areas. Each instrument is then evaluated in terms of its development, psychometric properties, and availability; finally, pragmatic concerns including the time and financial resources necessary for the use of that instrument are considered.
