Body Image Shame Scale (BISS)
Duarte, C., Pinto-Gouveia, J., Ferreira, C., & Batista, D. (2014)General Description
BISS is a 14-item self-report measure that assesses body image shame and its phenomenology. BISS presents a two-factor structure assessing an externalized and an internalized dimension underlying body image shame. The instrument showed very good internal consistency, construct, concurrent and divergent, and discriminant validities and good test-retest reliability. BISS discriminates between women with higher or lower levels of disordered eating behaviours.
