(EDI-3™) Eating Disorder Inventory-3™
BY DAVID M. GARNER, PHD
The EDI-3 is useful in treating individuals with confirmed or suspected eating disorders, assessing areas of psychopathology, identifying patient subgroups, and assessing treatment outcome.
The inventory consists of 91 items on 12 scales—3 scales directly addressing eating disorders and 9 focusing on psychological traits associated with eating disorders. In addition, a convenient Symptom Checklist elicits data regarding frequency of symptoms (e.g., binge eating; self-induced vomiting; exercise patterns; use of laxatives, diet pills, and diuretics). This information is useful in determining whether patients meet the formal diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder.
Also included is a Referral Form—a short version of the EDI-3 comprised of the three scales specific to eating disorders: Drive for Thinness, Bulimia, and Body Dissatisfaction. This form generates three indexes indicating need for referral. The first of these is based on the individual’s body mass index (BMI); the second, on BMI plus excessive eating concerns expressed on the EDI-3; and the third, on answers to behavioral questions related to eating-disorder pathology.
