The WSSQ has 12 items and is designed for use only with populations of overweight or obese persons. The WSSQ could be useful for identifying individuals who may benefit from a stigma reduction intervention and may also help evaluate programs designed to reduce stigma.WSSQ items are rated on a scale of 1 (completely disagree) to 5 (completely agree). Sum scores are calculated for the full scale and each subscale. Items 1–6 constitute the self‐devaluation subscale, and items 7–12 constitute the fear of enacted stigma subscale. There are no reverse‐scored items.
