The Perception of Teasing Scale (POTS) is a 6-item self-report questionnaire assessing the frequency of WBT (Thompson, Cattarin, Fowler, & Fisher, 1995). Participants were asked to rate the frequency of various experiences (e.g., People made fun of you because you were heavy) on a scale from 1= ‘never’ to 5= ‘very often.’ Total scores range from 6 to 30; higher scores indicate greater lifetime frequency of WBT. The POTS has demonstrated validity among non-treatment seeking youth (Jensen & Steele, 2010) and had excellent internal consistency in the current sample (Cronbach’s α= .91).
