Body image disturbance is an important component of various mental disorders. However, in the German-speaking area, an instrument assessing body image disturbance transdiagnostically and globally including the measurement of associated distress and interference is missing. The translated German Body Image Disturbance Questionnaire (BIDQ) was implemented in different studies in adult women and men (N = 997) alongside related measures. In one study, participants completed the BIDQ again after 4 weeks (n = 68). The confirmed one-factorial BIDQ showed excellent internal consistency (alpha =.92) and short-term stability (r =.89, p <.001). It was significantly associated with specific body image components, body image-related pathology, and psychosocial functioning (BMI:.16 <= r <=.70, eating disorder pathology: all p <.001). The German BIDQ can assess the extent of body image disturbance transdiagnostically. After confirmation of its sensitivity for change, it might be used to capture treatment-related changes in body image in mental disorders.
