Objective: The Dysmorphic Concern Questionnaire(DCQ) is a widely used screening instrument assessing dysmorphic concerns ranging from mild to an excessive level. There is not brief and valid questionnaire for the assessment of Body dysmorphic disorder, screening and research on the Iranian population. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of DCQ.
Method: Participants were 210 college students (103 males and 107 females) selected using a convenience sampling technique. They were also asked to complete the DCQ to measure their external shame, self-compassion, negative affect, and perfectionism. Data were analyzed in LISERL V. 8 and SSPS V. 18 applications using Confirmatory Factor Analysis,  (CFA), Correlation test and Cronbach's alpha.
Results: The one-factor structure of  DCQ was supported by the results of CFA in the Iranian sample [X2/df=2.21; Root Mean Square Error Of Approximation RMSEA=0.07; Normed Fit Index (NFI)=0.94; Comparative Fit Index (CFI)=0.97]. Dysmorphic Concern had the positive and significant correlation with external shame (r=0.38), perfectionism (r=0.22) and negative affect (r=0.22); and had negative and significant correlation with self-compassion (r=0.16). The obtained Cronbach's alpha coefficient was 0.78.
Conclusion: The DCQ showed acceptable psychometric properties on Iranian college students. Hence, it is a reliable and valid tool that can be used in clinical research and practice.
