1. Alabduljabbar, Manal. Effects of a Low-Dose Behavioral Treatment for Obesity.

Degree: MS, Psychology - Clinical and Health Psychology, 2013, University of Florida

Behavioral treatment of obesity, delivered via 16–24 weekly group sessions, commonly produces clinically meaningful weight changes. However, the cost of "high" dose interventions represents a barrier to dissemination, and there is a need to examine the potential benefits of less costly, "low" dose interventions. The current study examined the effects of a low-dose (8 session) behavioral treatment on weight change and reported health-related quality of life, compared with an 8-session education program highlighting national recommendations for appropriate diet and exercise practices for weight management.  Participants included 317 obese adults (mean ± SD, BMI = 36.2 ± 3.9 kg/m2) recruited from rural counties in northern Florida.  Outcomes included change in body weight and percentage of participants achieving a clinically meaningful weight loss (defined as body weight reduction of 5% or greater) as well as changes in health-related quality of life. Outcomes measures were taken prior to treatment and at a 6-month follow-up assessment. The results showed that, compared with the education control group, the low-dose behavioral intervention produced a greater mean change in body weight (mean ±SD, 7.60kg ± 6.40 vs. 4.46kg ± 4.9, p F (1) =3462.067, p F (1) = 12.826, p F (1) = 19.376, p < .001). Moreover, a mediational analysis revealed that weight loss partially mediated the effect of the behavioral intervention on health-related quality of life. These findings demonstrate the potential benefits of low-dose behavioral interventions for weight management.
