Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this paper was to highlight some psychometric characteristics of scores on the Italian version of the Dieter's Inventory of Eating Temptations. The analysis included assessment of the internal consistency of the individual scales, test-retest reliability, and estimates of both convergent and discriminant validity. Analyses showed that the Italian version of the inventory can be considered reliable and valid, which suggested its use as screening test for the identification of subjects who may be at risk for over-eating.
