Palmeira, L., Cunha, M., Pinto-Gouveia, J., Carvalho, S., & Lillis, J. (2016)General Description
The AAQW-R measures experiential avoidance in relation to difficulties with eating, weight, and physical activity. It comprises 10 of the original 22 items. The AAQW-R encloses three-factors: 1- food as control (items 1, 6 and 7); 2 – weight as barrier to living (items 2, 4 and 5); and 3 – weight-stigma (items 3, 8, 9 and 10). The three factor structure showed a good fit to the data. Higher scores represented more experiential avoidance.
