Body Image Assessments: SIBID

The Situational Inventory of Body-Image Dysphoria (SIBID) is a unique assessment of the frequency of negative body-image emotions across specific situational contexts. This inventory asks respondents how often they experience body-image dysphoria or distress in each of 48 identified situations-including both social and nonsocial contexts and activities related to exercising, grooming, eating, intimacy, physical self-focus, and appearance alterations. A short-form of the SIBID (SIBID-S) contains 20 items.  Research has repeatedly confirmed that both forms are internally consistent, stable, and convergently valid measures of body-image affect that are responsive to body-image therapy.

The SIBID (long and short form) and its manual are available for a nominal fee. Purchasers are permitted limited duplication of the questionnaires for research or clinical purposes. Conditions of use are as follows:

  • Period of use is limited to two (2) years.
  • Duplication of copies exceeding 1000 requires the author's written permission.
  • Distribution for use by others is prohibited.
  • Modification of the questionnaire items is prohibited. 
  • Use in online surveys is acceptable if the survey is posted on a restricted site (i.e., not posted on an open website).
  • Any commercial use of the materials, other than use in academic research or clinical practice, is prohibited.
  • Any document (i.e., technical report, thesis, dissertation, or published article) resulting from use of the assessment must include its proper citation.
