Özet

Objective: The scope of this study was to adapt two important measurement tools from the body image literature: the Objectified Body Consciousness Scale (OBCS) and the Self-Objectification Questionnaire (SOQ). These instruments are important in the assessment of eating and feeding disorders. The objectified body consciousness scale has three subscales: body surveillance, body shame, and control beliefs. Although the two scales had been translated to Turkish before, the psychometric properties had not been studied in detail.
