This handbook is a comprehensive collection of measures and assessment tools intended for use by researchers and clinicians that work with people with problem eating behaviors, obese clients, and the associated psychological issues that underlie these problems. It is a reference for researchers who specialize in obesity research and individuals that specialize in working with clients with problem eating behaviors and how to measure and assess their attitudes, beliefs and behaviors with regard to food. It is much broader than eating disorders as it deals with obesity (an area that has reached epidemic proportions in the US) and problem eating behaviors. Its collection is truly unique as no other volume offers such a comprehensive collection all in one place dealing with and focusing on assessments and measures related to eating behaviours. The assessment tools included in this volume include: - General Personality Assessment and psychopathology of persons with eating and weight related concerns - Measures of quality of life assessments - Methods for measuring attitudes and beliefs about obese people - Assessment of Body Image - Measures of Restrained Eating - Measures of Physical Activity - Measuring Food Intake - Binge Eating and Purging - Assessment of Eating and Weight related problems with Children - Identification of Psychological Problems of patients with eating disorders.
