Project
The Body Image in Nature Survey (BINS) is currently seeking international collaborators who would like to be involved in the project. For more information, please email viren.swami@aru.ac.uk. The BINS is an international, collaborative project with the primary aim of examining cross-sectional associations between nature exposure and positive body image across different world regions. By involving researchers from multiple sites across the globe, the BINS will produce one of the largest datasets examining the impact of nature exposure across countries. In so doing, the BINS will be able to help determine the extent to which nature exposure is reliably associated with more positive body image. The BINS is led by Prof Viren Swami (Anglia Ruskin University and Perdana University), Prof Stefan Stieger (Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences), Prof Ulrich S. Tran and Prof Martin Voracek (University of Vienna). The project commenced in late 2020, with all data collection expected to be completed by December 2021.

Goal: The primary objective of this study is to assess the cross-cultural validity of the FFiCD by examining its measurement invariance across nine countries from four continents: Belgium, Burkina Faso, Canada, France, India, Spain, Switzerland, Togo and the United States. Specifically, we aimed to test whether a) the FFiCD factor structure is equivalent across countries (configural invariance), b) its latent factors are defined by the same items equally across countries (metric invariance), and c) identical test scores for individuals from different cultures indicate equal levels of maladaptive personality traits (scalar invariance). The FFiCD was initially developed in English and has since been translated in several languages including Spanish (Aluja et al., 2021; Sorrel et al., in press), but not French. In fact, to our knowledge, there is currently no instrument available to assess ICD-11 maladaptive personality traits among French-speaking individuals. Therefore, a complementary aim of this study was to produce and validate a French and translation of the FFiCD. We also wished to provide additional validity evidence for the FFiCD by assessing: a) its convergent validity with the Big Five dimensions, and b) its criterion validity in relation to self-reported mental disorder diagnoses and consulting.
