The Food Acceptance and Awareness Questionnaire (FAAQ)

Research has suggested that mindfulness and acceptance are important factors in the development, maintenance, and treatment of obesity and eating disorders. However, few instruments are available that apply the constructs of acceptance and mindfulness to eating behaviour. The Food Acceptance and Awareness Questionnaire (FAAQ) was designed to fill this void. It is a self-report instrument that is comprised of 10 items, each rated on a seven-point likert rating scale that ranges from never true to always true. It consists of two scales: Ability to regulate eating despite urges and cravings,...

The Coparenting Relationship Scale (CRS)

The Coparenting Relationship Scale (CRS) is based on the conceptual framework of coparenting developed by Feinberg (2003). This framework included four overlapping domains: childrearing agreement, coparental support/undermining, division of labor, and joint management of family dynamics. Feinberg (2003) proposed that coparenting plays a central role in family life and provides essential support and security for parents and children. Research has also found that a relationship exists between coparenting relations and parenting quality. The CRS was designed as a comprehensive self-report...

WillTry

Childhood obesity has become a worldwide epidemic. The American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendations for the assessment, treatment, and prevention of childhood obesity highlight the importance of encouraging children to eat the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables. However, this can be a difficult task and factors such as socioeconomic status, preference, parental intake, nutritional knowledge, self-efficacy, and shared family meals have been found to influence a child's consumption of fruit and vegetables. The WillTry was designed to measure self-reported willingness to try...

Studies to Treat Or Prevent Pediatric Type 2 Diabetes - Fruit, Juice, & Vegetable Self-Efficacy (STOPP-T2D BCM-FJV SE)

A burgeoning concern among health care researchers and interventionists is the surge in incidence of type 2 diabetes in youth both in the US and overseas. "Knowing the consequences of type 2 diabetes in adults for micro- and macro-vascular disease progression, and knowing the impact of adequate treatment and management on those consequences, medical science seeks to broaden the scope of research to include this neglected and increasing population of patients.
HEALTHY was conducted in 42 middle schools at 7 field centers. Schools were randomized to either the intervention or control....

Squire's Quest! Measures

Fruit, juice, and vegetable (FJV) consumption among elementary level children is worryingly low. Initiatives are warranted to enable children to increase FJV intake. Individually-oriented psycho-educational multimedia assists the delivery of interventions and utilizes known behavior change principles. Baranowksi and colleagues have developed measures to address and measure behaviour and attitudinal constructs related to FVJ behavior change.

Caregiver Burden Scale

This caregiver burden scale was developed to assess perceived burden among caregivers of family members with dementia. While everyone who is a caregiver will assist with tasks for their family member with dementia, our previous research found that burden was more than just the number or type of tasks for which the patient required assistance. By obtaining a measure of the caregivers' perceived burden associated with each of 15 possible tasks, we were able to narrow down the source of stress in a way that could lead to effective interventions.

Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (ISEL)

The Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (ISEL)  is concerned with ways in which others affect persons' responses to stressful events. The ISEL consists of a list of 40 statements concerning the perceived availability of potential social resources. The items are counterbalanced for desirability; that is half the items are positive statements about social relationships while the other half are negative statements. Items each fall into four 10-item subscales; tangible support, appraisal support, self-esteem support, belonging support.

Belief in Collective Emotions Scale

The article in which the Belief in Collective Emotions Scale was published consisted of three studies where participants' belief in collective emotions and related concepts were examined. Participants' belief in the existence of collective emotions positively correlated with measures of in-group identification, collective guilt assignment to an out-group, patriotism, conformity to the in-group, collectivist values, and collective self‐esteem. The belief in collective emotions mediated the relationship between in-group identification and patriotism, and it also mediated the relationship...
