Brochure on the Female athlete triad
- Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]The Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q) assesses eating disorder behaviors through a self-report questionnaire. There are four subscales of the EDE-Q--Restraint, Eating Concern, Shape Concern, and Weight Concern--with scores for each ranging from 0-6. Overall scores also range from 0-6. Higher scores reflect greater severity of eating disorder psychopathology. Subscales are averaged to compute a total score.
- Number of Subjective and Objective Binge Episodes as Measured by the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]Frequency of subjective and objective binge episodes is reported.
- Secondary Outcomes [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
Internalization of the Sport-Specific Thin-Ideal (ISTI) measures thin-ideal internalization specific to athletes (average of items from 1-5; higher scores mean worse outcome).
Teammate Relationship Health (TRH) measures relational health with teammates (scores from 8-40; higher scores mean better outcome).
Ideal-Body Stereotype Scale - Revised (IBSS-R) assesses internalization of the traditional thin-ideal (scores from 1-10, higher scores mean worse outcome).
Positive and Negative Affect Scale - Revised (PANAS-X) assesses negative affect (average of items from 1-5; higher scores mean worse outcome).
Intervention Suitability Expectations (ISE) assesses perceived suitability and expectations of the intervention (average of total scores from 4-46; higher scores mean better outcome).
Knowledge of the Female Athlete Triad (KFAT) measures participant understanding of the Female Athlete Triad (each correct answer = 1, scores from 0-10; higher scores mean better outcome).
- Secondary Outcomes - BMI [ Time Frame: 18 months ]Body Mass Index (BMI) (self-reported) is a measure of kg/m^2.
