Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the validity and reliability of The Body Image Coping
Strategies Inventory-BICSI developed by Cash, Santos and Williams1. BICSI, 29 item, self-report measurement.
It consists three subscales: Appearance fixing, positive rational acceptance and avoidance. Methods: BICSI was
administered to 473 university students from Sakarya University and Dokuz Eylül University. The psychometric
properties of scale were investigated by exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, criterion related validity, test
re-test and Cronbachs alpha methods. Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale and Social Appearance Anxiety
Scale were used for criterion related validity. Results: In order to examine the structure validity and of BICSI
confirmatory factor analysis have been carried out. Confirmatory factor analysis showed that the three-factor
model fitted the research data. Internal reliability, test-retest reliability, item analysis, criterion-related validity analysis
has demonstrated its reliability and validity. Conclusion: The psychometric properties of the Turkish version
of the BICSI showed that a satisfactory level of reliability and validity. The scale can be used in Turkish university
students to assess body image coping strategies.
