Özet

Research suggests that rates of body image and eating disturbance are on the rise in Turkey and may be reaching levels comparable to those observed in Western societies. However, research examining theoretically based etiological factors for disordered eating via validated assessment measures is limited. The current study aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire-4-Revised (SATAQ-4R) in a sample of Turkish college women. Exploratory factor analysis indicated a 6-factor scale. Reliability and convergent validity of the SATAQ-4R subscales were good. Results suggest that the SATAQ-4R is appropriate for use with Turkish college females. Future work may seek to examine the scale with Turkish men. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
