Abstract

Background: The Dresdner Körperbildfragebogen (DKB-35) is a positive and comprehensive measure of the relationship with the body. Written and used in German the original has good psychometric qualities. The goal of the current study was to translate it into Hebrew and then test its psychometric qualities. Method: 292 adult community volunteers self-reported online on the DKB-35 as well as on the Satisfaction with Life Scale and the Eat-26. The data were exported into and analyzed in SPSS 21.0. Results: Structural validity, reliability and convergent and divergent validity of the Hebrew DKB-35 was demonstrated. All five original sub-scales: Body-Acceptance, Vitality, Body-Narcissism, Physical-Contact, and Sexual-Fulfillment were recovered. Conclusions: The DKB-35 in Hebrew can be used in the context of mental health and the process of recovery from eating disorders.
