Body Image Assessments: BIQLI
Substantial research confirms that body image affects multiple aspects of psychosocial functioning, yet there has been no existing direct assessment to quantify its positive or negative impact on individuals’ quality of life. The Body Image Quality of Life Inventory (BIQLI) uses a 7-point response format ranging from very negative (-3) to very positive (+3) effects of body image on 19 life domains. The BIQLI is internally consistent and stable over a 2- to 3-week period. It converges significantly with multiple measures of body-image evaluation and investment as well as with body mass. The BIQLI is valuable for quantifying how persons’ body image experiences affect a broad range of life domains—including sense of self, social functioning, sexuality, emotional well-being, eating, exercise, grooming, etc. The BIQLI has potential utility as a clinical assessment in discerning specifically how an individual’s body image impacts his or her life and as an outcome measure of body image interventions.
