"On Redefining the Body Image Satisfaction Questionnaire: A Preliminary Test of Multidimensionality"
O Prof. Pedro Flores e o Prof. Doutor Pedro Forte, docentes do Departamento de Desporto do nosso Instituto, em parceria com outros investigadores nacionais, publicaram recentemente um novo artigo científico. Com o título "On Redefining the Body Image Satisfaction Questionnaire: A Preliminary Test of Multidimensionality", o artigo científico publicado no Journal Healthcare, tem o objetivo de avaliar a multidimensionalidade do instrumento questionário de avaliação da satisfação corporal.
The aim of the present study was to examine the Body Image Satisfaction Questionnaire (BISQ) as a multidimensional instrument, designed to measure individuals’ body image satisfaction. A sample of 790 Portuguese healthy adults (female = 399; male = 391) aged 18 and 49 years old (M = 28.61, SD = 7.97) completed the BISQ. Exploratory factor analysis of the BISQ provided initial psychometric validity for a five-factor model assessing five dimensions of body image, namely, face, upper torso, lower torso, lower body, and overall body appearance. Confirmatory factor analysis supported this five-correlated model, in which a bifactor model provided the best fit to the data, defining a body image satisfaction factor and five specific factors. The BISQ clearly distinguished between various dimensions of body image satisfaction and showed satisfactory psychometric quality through factor analyses. This measure may have a broad application for research and practice, as a tool for capturing individual body image satisfaction.
