Abstract:

The paper introduces the construction and scoring principles of the Short Evaluation of Eating Disorders (SEED), which was developed for the assessment of the key eating disorders symptoms. The questionnaire uses six items and allows the calculation of two severity indices for anorexia and bulimia nervosa symptoms. Data from two patient and one non‐patient sample as well as therapist ratings are used to investigate different validity aspects of the SEED. Overall, the analyses underline the validity of the instrument. Recommendations for future research activities on the SEED are outlined.
