Translation and validation for the greek student population of the questionnaire CEBRACS
Summary:
The purpose of this study was the translation of the CEBRACS questionnaire (Compensatory Eating and Behaviors in Response to Alcohol Consumption Scale) in Greek and its validation for the Greek population. CEBRACS was developed for the measurement of Drunkorexia, a behavior of contemporaneous abuse of alcohol and of an eating disorder. Drunkorectics limit food intake or take laxatives and diuretics prior to alcohol consumption to increase inebriation. The CEBRACS questionnaire was built by Rahal et al in 2011, and has already been translated and validated for use in the Italian population (Pinna et al 2016). 208 college students from the University of Athens and Panteion University were used for the validation of CEBRACS in the Greek population. The AUDIT scale and the EAT-26 scale were used to evaluate the validity of CEBRACS in the Greek population. Comparing CEBRACS with AUDIT and EAT-26, we found high level of validity of the CEBRACS questionnaire. A factor analysis and Cronbach’s alpha were used to evaluate the reliability of the CEBRACS questionnaire. A factor analysis identified five factors explaining 75.32 percent of total variation on the CEBRACS scores; these factors are related to “Alcohol Consumption”, “Diet and Exercise”, “Diuretics Use”, “Laxatives Use”, “Restriction”. High values of Cronbach’s alpha between 0.63 and 0.95 revealed high level of homogeneity and reproducibility of the CEBRAC Scale.
