Conducting Psychosocial Evaluations of Bariatric Surgery Candidates

Shenelle A. Edwards-Hampton, PhD

A comprehensive psychosocial evaluation is the standard of practice with potential bariatric surgery candidates. Pre-surgery psychosocial evaluations gather information via clinical interview and administration of objective psychological measures.  Such evaluations have a dual purpose: first to screen for contraindications for surgery, and second to identify pre-surgery and post-surgery psychological treatment needs.
