The BAOP is divided into seven phases: preparation, evaluation, building, launching, honing, reevaluation, and long-term reevaluation.
A week prior to the evaluation, the therapist contacts the client to orient him or her to the BAOP, ensure the client's commitment (including the caregiver), and provide a week-long daily activity log.
If the client meets the inclusion criteria for the BAOP, the OT and client identify up to three performance goals.
If the client attempts a plan and is unsuccessful, the OT or caregiver provides the least amount of verbal and visual assistance necessary (e.g., a gesture to the BAOP binder).
A copy of the goals is put in Harry's BAOP binder for reference.
His OT cues him to the visual in his BAOP binder, and then Harry is able to explain each part.
In Table 1 it can be seen that RWA and SDO were also statistically significant associated with controllability of weight (BAOP).
To test if the reduction in the relationship between the independent (RWA and SDO) and dependent variables (AFA) is significant, when the mediating variable (BAOP) is included in the regression model, the procedure outlined by Sobel (1988) was followed.
It was found that the magnitudes of the relationships between RWA and SDO, on the one hand, and AFA, on the other hand, were reduced to 81.32 and 75.23% respectively when controllability of weight (BAOP) was included as a mediating variable.
Another one-way ANOVA was made with the Bulimia subscale as IV and the scales to measure attitudes toward obese people (AFA, ATOP and BAOP) as DVs.
Another one-way ANOVA was made with the oral control subscale as IV and the scales to measure attitudes toward obese people (AFA, ATOP and BAOP) as DVs.
In the current study it was found that participants with higher scores in the different sub-scales of the EAT-26 (Dieting, Bulimia and Oral Control) questionnaire reported more negative attitudes toward obese people in AFA (the 3 subscales), BAOP and ATOP scales compared to the participants with low scores in the EAT26.
