Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the major content areas for inclusion in an Eating Disorders prevention-intervention guide for coaches of female college athletes. To achieve this goal the current literature was reviewed to identify the major issues associated with eating disorders and female college athletes. From this information ten potential content areas were identified. Once content areas were identified, several statements were developed which reflected potential sub-areas of information. The content areas were then organized into a two-part questionnaire. The questionnaire was mailed to nine recognized experts representing college athletics, student health services and psychology, for evaluation. Part one of the questionnaire asked experts to indicate how Important each item (sub-area) within the given content area was on a five-point Likert-type scale. In part two of the questionnaire, experts were asked to indicate the relative importance each content area should be given in a guide. Questionnaires were returned by all 9 experts. Comments made by experts on the questionnaires resulted in modifications of 7 content area statements. The information obtained from the study will be used as a basis for the development of an Eating Disorders prevention-intervention guide for coaches of female college athletes.
