Supplemental Product Resources

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.

Consistent with prior editions, yet significantly updated

  • 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.
  • The EDI-3 has 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.

EDI-3 Symptom Checklist aids in diagnosis

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.

EDI-3 Referral Form is designed for allied health professionals

  • An abbreviated form of the EDI-3, the EDI-3 RF can be administered in 5-10 minutes (and scored in 15 minutes) and includes behavioral symptom questions to help identify individuals with potential eating disorders or pathology, including the three scales that compose the Eating Disorder Risk Composite (i.e., Drive for Thinness, Bulimia, Body Dissatisfaction).
  • Referral indexes are used to identify individuals who have or are at risk for eating disorders. These indexes are based on the individual’s body mass index (BMI) only; on BMI plus responses to EDI-3 questions about excessive eating concerns; and on responses to behavioral questions pertaining to eating disorder pathology.

Scoring software available

The EDI-3 SP is a computer-based scoring program for the EDI-3. Enter demographic information and item responses into the software program, and the software generates unlimited detailed, individualized Score Reports with raw scores, T scores, percentiles, and qualitative classifications for all EDI-3 scales. Reports can be edited on-screen to incorporate additional clinical information or to edit descriptive statements.

Spanish version available! The EDI-3 is also available in European Spanish.
