Abstract:

Success in the study and treatment of eating disorders and weight-related problems depends greatly on the efficacy of the measurement 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 materials, the Handbook of Assessment Methods for Eating Behaviors and Weight-Related problems is the first comprehensive reference 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, psychometric properties, and availability; finally, pragmatic concerns including the time and financial resources necessary for the use of that instrument are considered.

Through a combination of standardized formatting and meticulous editing, this volume achieves a rare - and appreciable - level of integration and cohesiveness.
