Description:

The Eating Disorder Examination (EDE) interview for children is a clinical interview assessment of eating disorder psychopathology (including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder) based on the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The interview includes items related to the respondent behaviors that are potentially indicative of an eating disorder over the past 4 weeks (28 days).

Protocol:

THE EATING DISORDERS EXAMINATION

Proposed version for use with subjects aged 8-13

Revised August 15, 2014

INTERVIEW SCHEDULE

1. INTRODUCTION

The idea is to get a general picture of the subjects eating habits.

It is very difficult for children to get a clear grasp of the time span being discussed. Hopefully, we will have an agenda for the last three months that has been completed by the child’s parent. At this point, ask the child if they think that the agenda is accurate, and if there were any other significant events that occurred over the last three months that they would like to add to the agenda. The child then keeps this agenda on which all this information is written throughout the interview and should be encouraged to refer to it.

Having used this agenda to orient the child to the specific time period being assessed, use the following questions as guidelines to ascertain the child’s general eating habits.

*To start with I’d like to get an idea of how your eating has been over the last four weeks.

*Has your eating been very different from one day to the next?

*Has your eating on weekends been different to days during the week?

*Have there been any days when you haven’t eaten anything at all? Recent sick days or vacation days during which you’re eating might have been different?

*What about during the past two months? (NB at this point you will almost certainly have to use the agenda to aid recall.)

THE KEY PROBLEM

Occasionally children will say that they "don’t know" why it is they are avoiding certain foods etc. and therefore can’t answer the key part of the item - is it to influence your weight or shape? Thus, on these items, they cannot be marked for these behaviors. However, when it becomes clearer later on that these are their main concerns and therefore prime motivation for engaging in a particular behavior - Fairburn suggests that you can go back and re-rate, although he may not have had such core concepts in mind.

SCORING DECISIONS

a) It has been decided to rate child’s answers as what they would do if they were allowed to by their parents. For example, for social eating children are made to do this but would almost certainly avoid it if they could, and therefore this should be rated as avoiding.

b) A lot of children put their answer under a cover of "I used to ... but now I feel differently". In the pilot study, this was often not convincing (although not exactly lying) but had to be rated as child answered, and hence some scores may be consistently underrating the child’s psychopathology.

2. PATTERN OF EATING

Essence of question: To get a clear picture of child’s eating habits over the last 7 days.

Questions to ask:

*I would like to ask about your pattern of eating: Over the past 7 days (not including today), which of these meals or snacks have you eaten regularly? (Check understanding of regularly).

Guidelines

• Ask about weekdays and weekends separately
• Meals or snacks should be rated even if they lead on to a "binge"
• "Brunch" should generally be classified as lunch

Rating

Rate each meal and snack separately, usually accepting the subject’s classification.

Rate up (i.e., give a higher rating) if it is difficult to choose between two ratings.

Rate 8 if means or snacks are difficult to classify.

Rate each meal according to the rating table below.

If a usual week, ask about a typical week in the past month.

Scoring: Fill in the brackets after each meal with the most appropriate score from the table below.

2 - meal or snack eaten on less than half the days

3 -

4 - meal or snack eaten on more than half the days

5 -

6 - meal or snack eaten every day

3. RESTRAINT OVER EATING (Restraint subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether the child has consciously been attempting to restrict what he/she eats, regardless of whether their attempts have been successful.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you deliberately been trying to cut down on what you eat, even if you haven’t managed to do this?

*How often?

*What is the purpose of cutting down?

*Have you done this to try to change your shape or weight?

Guidelines

• The restraint should have been intended to influence shape, weight or body composition, although this may not be the sole of main reason.
• It should have consisted of planned attempts at restriction, rather than spur of the moment attempts such as the decision to resist a second helping.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which the subject has consciously attempted to restrict his/her food intake, whether or not he/she has succeeded.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No attempt at restraint

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Attempted to exercise restraint on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 3 - Attempted to exercise restraint on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Attempted to exercise restraint every day

[ ]

4. AVOIDANCE OF EATING (Restraint subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether the child has gone for periods of 8 hours or more without eating, and if not, would they, were they allowed. In either instance, determine how often this occurred over the past four weeks.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you even not eaten anything for most of the day? (Expand by asking about skipping meals, usual times for breakfast, supper, etc., to clarify whether the eight hour criterion is satisfied.)

How often has this happened?

Why have you done this?

Have you done this to try and change your shape and weight?

Guidelines

• It may be helpful to illustrate the length of time (e.g., 9am to 5pm).
• The abstinence must have been at least partly self-imposed, rather than being due to force of circumstance.
• It should have been intended to influence shape, weight or body composition, although this may not have been the sole or main reason.
• Check that avoidance has not been to annoy a parent.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which there has been at least eight hours abstinence from eating food (soup and milk-shakes count as food, whereas drinks in general do not) during waking hours.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No such days

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Avoidance on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Avoidance on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Avoidance every day

[ ]

5. EMPTY STOMACH (Restraint subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether the child has a definite desire to have an empty stomach and if so, how often. It is important to differentiate between the desire to have an empty stomach and the desire for the stomach to feel empty or be flat.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you wanted your tummy to BE empty - I mean not to have anything in it at all?

*Why have you wanted to have an empty stomach?

*Is it because you like to feel hungry?

*How often have you wanted this?

Guidelines

• This item must be differentiated from a desire for the stomach to FEEL empty or to be flat.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which the subject has a definite desire to have a completely empty stomach for reasons to do with dieting, shape or weight.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No definite desire to have an empty stomach

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Definite desire to have an empty stomach on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Definite desire to have an empty stomach on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Definite desire to have an empty stomach every day

[ ]

6. FOOD AVOIDANCE (Restraint subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether, and how often, the child has been attempting to avoid liked foods, whether successful in those attempts or not.

Questions to ask:

*What foods do you really like / did you like before?

*Over the past four weeks have you tried to not eat any foods that you especially like, even if you haven’t managed this? (It may be easier to elicit liked foods first, then as the question).

*How often?

*Why have you stopped eating those foods?

*Have you done this to try to change your shape or weight?

Guidelines

• The goal should have been to avoid the foods altogether and not merely to restrict their consumption.
• Drinks do not count as food.
• The avoidance should have been intended to influence shape, weight or body composition, although this may not have been the sole or main reason.
• It should be a strong desire, not a passing thought.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which the subject has actively attempted to avoid eating specific foods (which he/she likes) whether or not he/she has succeeded.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No attempts to avoid food

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Attempted to avoid food on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Attempted to avoid food on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Attempted to avoid food every day

[ ]

7. DIETARY RULES. (Restraint Subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether the child has any dietary rules as opposed to general eating principles, and if so, how often the child attempts to obey these rules.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you tried to stick to certain definite rules about your eating; for example, only allowing yourself a certain number of calories, or a certain amount of food, or rules about what you should eat or when you should eat?

*Have there been times when you know you have broken one of your own rules about eating?

*Would you keep to them if you were not made to break them by your parents?

*How have you felt about breaking them?

*How would have felt if you had broken one of your eating rules?

*What are your rules?

*Why have you tried to stick to them?

*Did you make them to try to change your shape or weight?

*Do you try to stick to them every day (how often …)?

*Tell me more about your rules. Are they about certain foods or are they more general? (You will need to give some examples at this point. Examples of definite rules would be "I must not eat eggs" or "I must not eat cake", whereas a general principle would be "I should try to eat healthy food".

Guidelines

• Dietary rules should be rated as present if the subject has been attempting to follow "definite" (i.e., specific) dietary rules regarding his/her food intake.
• The rules should have been self-imposed, although originally they may have been prescribed.
• They should have been concerned with what the subject should have eaten or when eating should have taken place. They might consist of a calorie limit (e.g., below 1,200 calories a day), not eating before a certain time of day, not eating certain kinds of food, or not eating at all.
• There should have been specific rules and not general guidelines, and there may have been distress should they have been broken.
• If the subject is aware that she has occasionally broken a personal dietary rule, this suggests that one or more specific rules has been present. In such cases the interviewer should ask in detain about the transgression in an attempt to identify the underlying rule.
• The rules should have been intended to influence shape, weight or body composition, although this may not have been the sole or main reason.
• Ensure that the dietary rules are not purely, for example, obsessive compulsive or control related.
• It should be noted that "dietary rules" are regarded as having been present if there have been clear attempts to obey specific dietary rules.

Rating

Rate 0 if no dietary rule can be identified.

If there has been more than one rule straddling different time periods within the four weeks, these periods should be summated to make the ratings.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - Has not attempted to obey such rules

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Attempted to obey such rules on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Attempted to obey such rules on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Attempted to obey such rules every day

[ ]

8. PREOCCUPATION WITH FOOD, EATING OR CALORIES (Eating Concern subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain whether thinking about food, etc. has at any time impaired concentration, and if so, how often.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you spent much time between meals thinking about food, eating or calories (not because you were hungry)?

*How often?

*Has thinking about food, eating or calories made it hard for you to concentrate on or pay attention to what you are doing?

*How about concentrating on things that you like doing, like watching television, reading, playing computer games (etc.)?

Guidelines

• Concentration is regarded as impaired if there have been intrusive thoughts about food, eating or calories which have interfered with activities.
• Ask if the child could stop thinking about food if they tried, in order to ascertain whether the thoughts are intrusive or not.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which concentration has been impaired due to preoccupation with food, eating or calories, whether or not bulimic episodes have occurred.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No concentration impairment.

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Concentration impairment on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Concentration impairment on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Concentration impairment every day

[ ]

9. FEAR OF LOSING CONTROL OVER EATING (Eating concern subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain how often a fear of losing control over eating has occurred, regardless of whether the child felt in control of his/her eating behaviors.

Questions to ask:

*Over the past four weeks have you been frightened of losing control over eating?

Have you been afraid that you won’t be able to stop eating? (That is, once you’ve started eating, have you been scared that you won’t be able to stop, or have you avoided starting to eat because of fears that you won’t be able to stop eating when you wanted to?)

How often have you felt like this?

Guidelines

• You are looking to identify instances of fear of losing control as opposed to instances of loss of control.

• "Loss of control" involves a sense that one will not be able to resist or stop eating.

Rating

Rate the number of days on which definite fear has been present, irrespective of whether the subject feels he/she has been in control.

If the subject feels unable to answer this question because he/she has already lost control, rate 9.

Scoring: Circle the most appropriate score.

[ ] 0 - No fear of losing control.

[ ] 1 -

[ ] 2 -Fear of losing control present on less than half the days

[ ] 3 -

[ ] 4 - Fear of losing control present on more than half the days

[ ] 5 -

[ ] 6 - Fear of losing control present every day

[ ]

10. BULIMIC EPISODES AND OTHER EPISODES OF OVEREATING (Diagnostic item)

Essence of question: To determine how many episodes of each of four different types of overeating have occurred (if any) in the specified period.

Guidelines for interviewers: Four forms of overeating are distinguished. The distinction is based upon the presence or absence of two characteristics:

i) Loss of control (required for both types of "bulimic episode")
ii) The consumption of what would generally be regarded as large amounts of food (required for both types of "objective" episodes).

To facilitate the decision of what kind of overeating episode has occurred, use this table:

"Large"(EDE definition)

Not "large", but viewed by subject as excessive.

"Loss of control"

Objective
Bulimic
Episode

Subjective
Bulimic
Episode

No "loss of control"

Objective

Overeating

Subjective

Overeating

The interviewer should ask about each form of overeating. It is important to note that the forms of overeating are not mutually exclusive: it is possible for subjects to have had several different forms of overeating episodes over the preceding month.

Definition of key terms:

Loss of control: The interviewer should ask the subject whether he or she experienced a loss of control over eating at the time that the episode of overeating occurred.

• If this is clearly described, loss of control should be rated as present.
• Loss of control may be rated positively even if the episode has been planned.
• If the subject uses terms such as "driven to eat" etc., loss of control should be rated as present.

For chronic cases only:

• If the subject reports no sense of loss of control, yet describes having not been able to stop eating once eating had started, or having not been able to prevent the episode from occurring, loss of control should be rated as present.
• If the subjects report that they are no longer trying to control their eating because overeating is inevitable, loss of control should be rated as present.

If the interviewer is in doubt, loss of control should be rated as absent.

Large amount of food. The decision whether or not the amount eaten was "large" should be made by the interviewer and should not require the agreement of the subject.

• "Large" may be used to refer to the amount of any particular types or the overall quantity of food consumed.
• The interviewer should take into account what would be the usual amount eaten under the circumstances. This required some knowledge of the eating habits of the subject’s general (but not necessarily immediate) social group.
• What else was eaten and whether or not the subject subsequently spits or vomits the food.

If the interviewer is in doubt, the amount should not be classified as large.

The number of episodes of overeating. When calculating the number of episodes of overeating, the subject’s definition of separate episodes should be accepted unless there was an hour or more within a period of eating when the subject was not eating.

• In this case, the initial episode should be regarded as having been completed.
• When estimating the length of any gap, do not count the time spent vomiting.
• Note that purging (self induced vomiting or laxative misuse) is not used to define the end of an individual episode of overeating.

Guidelines for rating the overeating section.

1. Ask the asterisked questions in order to identify the episodes of perceived or true overeating have occurred over the previous 28 days. Note down all the forms of overeating.
2. Obtain detailed information about each form of overeating to decide whether it involved eating "large" amounts of food and whether or not there was a "loss of control".
3. Then establish, for each form of overeating, the number of days on which it occurred and the total number of occasions. It is advisable to make comprehensive notes.
4. Finally, check with the subject to ensure that no misunderstandings have arisen.

Questions for rating items:

*I’d like to ask you about any times you have really eaten too much during the past four weeks.

*Different people mean different things by eating too much, or overeating. Can you tell me about any times when you have felt that you have eaten too much in one go?

(To assess amount eaten):

What have you usually eaten at times like this?
What was the rest of your family/friends eating when it happened?

(To assess loss of control):

Did you feel out of control, or that you just couldn’t stop when it happened?

(Chronic case only):

Could you have made yourself stop eating once you had started?
Could you have somehow stopped yourself from starting to overeat in the first place?

Ask about the frequency of episodes, both over the last four weeks, and over the preceding two months.

Scoring: For objective bulimic episodes, subjective bulimic episodes and episodes of objective overeating, make the following ratings:

In general, it is best to calculate the number of days first, and then number of episodes.
Rate 9 if you do not ask about the preceding two months.
Episodes of subjective overeating are not rated.

1) Objective Bulimic Episodes:

i. Number of days on which one or more episodes have occurred in the last 28 days (rate 00 if none):

DSM-5 BINGE EATING DISORDER MODULE

[These questions need not be asked of patients who have regularly "purged" (i.e., vomited or misused laxatives or diuretics) defined as at least 24 episodes of one of these forms of behaviour over the past three months.]

1) If a participant has 2+ OBEs on average each month for the past 3 months (regardless of # of SBEs), just ask the BED module questions about OBEs.

2) If a participant has 2+ LOC (OBEs and SBEs together) on average each month for the past 3 months, ask BED module questions about LOC in general.

3) If a participant has 2+SBEs on average each month for the past 3 months and no OBEs, ask the BED module questions about SBEs.

Three-month Frequency of Loss of Control Eating

[In line with the DSM-5 criteria for binge eating disorder, the focus of the three-month assessment is on the number of days on which objective and/or subjective bulimic episodes have occurred rather than on the number of individual episodes.

Since it is difficult for subjects to provide a three-month average, it is best to focus initially on the preceding two months (months 2 and 3) The goal is to arrive at a three-month figure.]

1) If the BED module has been completed, refer to the same representative objective and/or subjective bulimic episodes.

2) If a participant has 1+ OBE in the past 3 months (regardless of SBEs), ask the LOC Severity Index questions about OBE(s).

3) If a participant has 1+ SBE in the past 3 months and no OBEs, ask the LOC Severity Index questions about SBE(s).]

AGE OF ONSET SECTION

[Code -99 if a question was not asked or if it was deemed not applicable.

Do not code a range like 4-5 or 40-50 (ex: for age of LOC onset or for number of diets ever). If the participant is not able to give an exact number, take the average (4.5 or 45). You can then confirm with the participant that the average seems like the best number.

Rate 777 if the number is so great that it cannot be calculated.]

11. DIETARY RESTRICTION OUTSIDE BULIMIC EPISODES

(Diagnostic item)

Only ask this question if at least 12 objective and/or subjective bulimic episodes have occurred over the last three months.

Essence of question: To ascertain to what degree the subject cuts down on the amount he/she eats (outside of bulimic episodes) in order to change his/her shape or weight. Essentially, this is an overview of the periods that the subject has been in control over the last three months.

Questions to ask:

*Apart from these times when you have been out of control with your eating, how much have you been cutting down on the amount you eat?

*What have you usually been eating in a day?

*Have you done this to try to change your shape or weight?

Guidelines

• Ask about actual food intake outside the objective and subjective bulimic episodes.
• Any dietary restriction should have been intended to influence shape, weight or body composition, although this may not have been the sole or main reason.

Rating

Rate the average degree of dietary restriction.
Rate each of the past three months separately.
Rate 9 if not asked.

27./28. IMPORTANCE OF SHAPE AND IMPORTANCE OF WEIGHT

(2 Diagnostic items and weight concern subscale/shape concern subscale)

Essence of question: To ascertain how important the child’s shape and weight are in influencing how they evaluate themselves as a person.

Introduction:

*People have different ways that they feel about (judge, think, evaluate) themselves. I want to ask you about how you evaluate yourself."

*Let me give you an example. When your teacher gives you a grade, he or she uses several things to evaluate you as a student, such as: attendance, how you do on tests, class participation, homework, being on time to school, etc."

*I want to know what you use to evaluate yourself as a person. I’d like to make a list with you of four or five things that you use to evaluate yourself. I will write each one of these things on a card."

Most children completely understand the question at this point, and offer up several examples of what they use to evaluate themselves. However, if they do not, use the ensuing probe.

*For some people, they use doing well at school to evaluate themselves; for others, being kind to animals, how they get along with their friends or family, playing sports, involvement in clubs or other activities, etc.

(Give the child loads of examples, or else they may just repeat your two or three - by giving lots, they have to think about it a little bit more.)

For each you should clarify its status by saying:

"So being nice to your brother is one of the things you use to evaluate yourself?"

When you have a list of four or five things written on cards, if they haven’t said their "shape" or "weight," introduce these to the list and write them on the cards also.

Ask:

*Do you use your shape to evaluate yourself?
*Do you use your weight to evaluate yourself?

  • Circle each child’s responses
  • If more than 1 response to a query, circle all responses and note all codes (numbers) on the summary form
  • If a response does not fit into a category, write in the new response and be sure to include the response on the summary form
  • If you are unclear on how to code a response, contact the team so that we can make a collaborative decision

Scoring: The EDE, and its self-reported versions, EDE-Q, generate two types of data. First they provide frequency data on key behavioral features of eating disorders in terms of number of episodes of the behavior and in some instances number of days on which the behavior has occurred. Second, they provide subscale scores reflecting the severity of aspects of the psychopathology of eating disorders. The subscales are Restraint, Eating Concern, Shape Concern, and Weight Concern. To obtain a particular subscale score, the ratings for the relevant items (listed below) are added together and the sum divided by the total number of items forming the subscales. If ratings are only available on some items, a score may nevertheless be obtained by dividing the resulting total by the number of rated items so long as more than half the items have been rated. To obtain an overall or "global" score, the four subscales scores are summed and the resulting total divided by the number of subscales (i.e., four). Subscales score are reported as means and standard deviations.

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

Prior to using the Eating Disorders Examination©, an interviewer should be trained and should consult the extensive "Interviewer Guidance for Interviewers" and "Generating DSM-5 Eating Disorder Diagnoses" (provided at [slink[www.credo-oxford.com/pdfs/EDE_17.0D.pdf|www.credo-oxford.com/pdfs/EDE_17.0D.pdf]]). This document is copyrighted by Christopher G. Fairburn, Zafra Cooper, and Marianne O’Connor (2014).

Equipment Needs

The PhenX Working Group acknowledges these questions can be administered in a computerized or noncomputerized format (i.e., paper-and-pencil instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer/handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Definition

A questionnaire to assess eating disorders pathology and behavior.

Purpose

This measure can be used to assess the symptoms and risk factors associated with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. It can also be used in longitudinal studies to assess efficacy of treatment interventions.

Selection Rationale

The Eating Disorders Examination (EDE) is widely viewed as the gold standard measure of eating disorder psychopathology. It provides a measure of the range and severity of eating disorder features. It can also generate operational eating disorder diagnoses. It is used in most treatment studies and in many other investigations of eating disorder psychopathology. Normative values are available.
