Nonns and reliability and validity data are presented for an objectively scored Body Awareness Questionnaire (BAQ), which is suitable for use with college students and nonstudent adults. The BAQ is an 18-item scale designed to assess self-reported attentiveness to normal nonemotive body processes, specifically, sensitivity to body cycles and rhythms, ability to detect small changes in normal functioning, and ability to anticipate bodily reactions. Research applications, including investigation of sex-reiated differences in body awareness and its correlates, are discussed.
