Title

Body concept: Conceptualization and review of paper and pencil measures

Abstract

Reviews various attempts to define and measure body self-concept. The relationship between body and general self-concept was examined, and a breakdown of the body self-concept for purposes of measurement was proposed. Psychometric qualities of paper-and-pencil measures of body self-concept are considered, and recommendations regarding design of future instruments of this type are made. The authors suggest that when studying general self-concept, one should be alert to the fact that body self-concept is a separate, distinct construct forming a unique and independent psychological dimension.
