What I have mounted here are the following files:
In the past I have said:
If you are planning to use this questionnaire in a study, I would be very grateful if you would communicate with me so that I can give you any advice that may be useful. I may also be able to arrange for scoring and analysis of the questionnaire if you don't have the local facilities for this to be done easily. I can be reached by snail mail at: Rampton Hospital, Retford, Notts. DN22 0PD Britian by telephone at [+44|0] 1777 247242 and 'fax at: [+44|0] 1777 247212 (mark "f.a.o. Chris Evans")">
I haven't worked in body image or eating disorders for over a decade now and the only person who ever took me up on that, did so when I was buried in other work and I was unable to assist them and have now lost contact details with that person (apologies if you do see this, do get back at me if it's still pertinent). However, I do work on psychometrics still so if you're interested in doing a good analysis of moderately large dataset of BSQ34 data to recheck the shortening specification but you need psychometric help, do try Emailing me!
