Abstract

Body Attitude Test (BAT, <span style="font-variant:small- caps"><small>Van Coppenolle, Probst</small></span> et al., 1990) is a widely used measurement. Our main goal was to support the original factorial structure of BAT in Hungarian normal weight and overweight/obese female samples. Research design was a cross-sectional, questionnaire study. Research participants were normal weight female students, and female participants of a lifestyle modification program. Measures were Body Attitude Test, Human Figure Drawings Test, Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, and Trait Anxiety Inventory. The confirmatory factor analysis verified the original structure of BAT in our samples. Internal consistency, test-retest reliability and construct validity were satisfactory.
