A revision of one of the most widely used self-report measures of constructs shown to be clinically relevant in individuals with eating disorders, the EDI-3 includes enhancements that make the instrument more consistent with the psychological domains identified by modern theories to be most relevant.
Features and benefits
The EDI-3 consists of 91 items organized into 12 primary scales: Drive for Thinness, Bulimia, Body Dissatisfaction, Low Self-Esteem, Personal Alienation, Interpersonal Insecurity, Interpersonal Alienation, Interoceptive Deficits, Emotional Dysregulation, Perfectionism, Asceticism, and Maturity Fears.
Yields six composites: one that is eating-disorder specific (i.e., Eating Disorder Risk) and five that are general integrative psychological constructs (i.e., Ineffectiveness, Interpersonal Problems, Affective Problems, Overcontrol, General Psychological Maladjustment).
The item set from the original EDI, as well as items from the 1991 revision (EDI-2), has been carefully preserved so that clinicians and researchers can compare data collected previously with data from the EDI-3.
Includes clinical norms for adolescents in addition to U.S. and international adult clinical norms. It also provides multisite nonclinical comparison samples.
- The easy-to-use Percentile/T-Score Profile Forms include critical item sets that allow for the development of a more meaningful clinical picture.
- An independent and structured self-report form, the EDI-3 SC is easy to complete and provides data regarding frequency of symptoms (i.e., binge eating; self-induced vomiting; exercise patterns; use of laxatives, diet pills, and diuretics) necessary for determining whether patients meet DSM-IV-TR™ diagnostic criteria.
- Administration and scoring are available 24/7 on PARiConnect, our online assessment platform.
