Further Evidence of the Reliability and validity of the Body Esteem Scale
Journal of Clinical Psychology
Results of the present study indicate that over a 3‐month period, the multidimensional Body Esteem Scale (BES) exhibits high test‐retest reliability. Findings further indicate that the BES is not susceptible to a tendency to unrealistically deny negative self‐attributes and is only very slightly susceptible to a tendency to unrealistically attribute positive self‐attributes. Overall, the present study supports the continued use of the BES as a reliable and valid measure of male and female body esteem.
