Abstract

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the validity and utility of the Stirling Eating Disorder Scales (SEDS) as a screening instrument for eating disorders in adolescents. METHOD: A total of 53 patients and 61 age-matched controls all completed the SEDS, and patients completed the Eating Disorders Examination (EDE) for construct comparison purposes. RESULTS: The SEDS was found to have good criterion and discriminant validity, as well as high internal consistency. DISCUSSION: The SEDS appears to be useful as a screening tool for adolescents, although many participants had some difficulties with comprehending certain items, which may affect its utility in young populations.
