A 34 item self-report measure developed to measure the negative self-appraisal of body shape common in Eating Disorders (Cooper, P. J., Taylor, M. J., Cooper, Z., & Fairburn, C. G. (1986). The development and validation of the Body Shape Questionnaire. International Journal of Eating Disorders, 6, 485–494. https://doi.org/10.1002/1098-108X(198707)6:4%3C485::AID-EAT2260060405%3E3.0.CO;2-O) Has two approved 16 item and four 8 item short forms (Evans, C., & Dolan, B. (1993). Body Shape Questionnaire: Derivation of shortened ‘alternate forms’. International Journal of Eating Disorders, 13, 315–321. https://doi.org/10.1002/1098-108X(199304)13:3%3C315::AID-EAT2260130310%3E3.0.CO;2-3).
In many ways epitomises a questionnaire that one might expect to be unidimensional. More information and downloads and some translations available at https://www.psyctc.org/psyctc/psyctc-org-home/instruments/body-shape-questionnaire-bsq/.
