Background: Depression is a common contributor to suffering and disability in people with chronic pain. However, the assessment of depression in this population has been hampered by the presence of a number of somatic symptoms that are shared between chronic pain, treatment side-effects and traditional concepts of depression. As a result, the use of depression measures that do not contain somatic items has been encouraged. Objective: This study examined the psychometric properties of the Depression sub-scale of the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scales (DASS) in a Brazilian chronic pain patient population. Method: Data on a number of measures were collected from 348 participants attending pain facilities. Results: Principal components and exploratory factor analyses indicated the presence of only one factor. Item analyses indicated adequate item-scale correlations. The Cronbach alpha was .96, which suggests an excellent internal consistency. Conclusion: The DASS-Depression scale has adequate psychometric properties and its further use with Brazilian chronic pain populations can now be supported. (c) 2008 Elsevier Inc.

OBJECTIVE: To review the psychometric properties of the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) as a self-report measure of depression in a variety of settings and populations. METHODS: Relevant studies of the BDI-II were retrieved through a search of electronic databases, a hand search, and contact with authors. Retained studies (k = 118) were allocated into three groups: non-clinical, psychiatric/institutionalized, and medical samples. RESULTS: The internal consistency was described as around 0.9 and the retest reliability ranged from 0.73 to 0.96. The correlation between BDI-II and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-I) was high and substantial overlap with measures of depression and anxiety was reported. The criterion-based validity showed good sensitivity and specificity for detecting depression in comparison to the adopted gold standard. However, the cutoff score to screen for depression varied according to the type of sample. Factor analysis showed a robust dimension of general depression composed by two constructs: cognitive-affective and somatic-vegetative. CONCLUSIONS: The BDI-II is a relevant psychometric instrument, showing high reliability, capacity to discriminate between depressed and non-depressed subjects...

Os objetivos foram: 1) traduzir e adaptar transculturalmente ao idioma português do Brasil a Scale of Oral Health Outcomes for 5-year-old children (SOHO-5); 2) avaliar as propriedades psicométricas (confiabilidade, validade e responsividade) da versão de pais e versão de crianças do SOHO-5; 3) avaliar o impacto da cárie dentária e leões dentárias traumáticas (LDT) na qualidade de vida relacionada à saúde bucal (QVRSB) da criança desde a percepção de pais e filhos; 4) avaliar a concordância entre relatos de pais e filhos sobre à QVRSB da criança. A adaptação transcultural do SOHO-5 foi testada em dois pilotos com 40 crianças de 5 e 6 anos de idade e seus pais. A validade e confiabilidade foram testadas em 193 crianças e pais. Das 193, 154 completaram o SOHO-5 de 7 a 14 dias após o tratamento odontológico da criança para analisar a responsividade. Para este fim eles também responderam julgamentos de transição global sobre a percepção de mudança na saúde bucal após tratamento. As medidas de responsividade incluíram tamanhos de efeito (TE) e médias de respostas padronizadas (MRP). Para avaliação do impacto, 335 pares de crianças e pais completaram o SOHO-5, e as crianças foram examinadas por três examinadores calibrados. A concordância entre relatos foi avaliada em 298 pares mãe-criança e 37 pares pai-criança. Os resultados obtidos indicam que a consistência interna pelo alfa de Cronbach foi de 0...

WOS:000348088300010 (Nº de Acesso Web of Science); Background: Although the significant scientific advances on place attachment literature, no instruments exist specifically developed or adapted to residential care. Method: 410 adolescents (11 - 18 years old) participated in this study. The place attachment scale evaluates five dimensions: Place identity, Place dependence, Institutional bonding, Caregivers bonding and Friend bonding. Data analysis included descriptive statistics, content validity, construct validity (Confirmatory Factor Analysis), concurrent validity with correlations with satisfaction with life and with institution, and reliability evidences. The relationship with individual characteristics and placement length was also verified. Results: Content validity analysis revealed that more than half of the panellists perceive all the items as relevant to assess the construct in residential care. The structure with five dimensions revealed good fit statistics and concurrent validity evidences were found, with significant correlations with satisfaction with life and with the institution. Acceptable values of internal consistence and specific gender differences were found. Conclusions: The preliminary psychometric properties of this scale suggest it potential to be used with youth in care.

Aim: To investigate the psychometric properties of the Finnish version of the Resilience Scale (RS) and its short version (RS-14), as well as the relationship of resilience with demographic variables and self-perceived health. Method: A standard procedure was used for translation of the scale, and 243 participants (75% women, mean age = 41.0; SD = 17.8) were evaluated with the RS, the RS-14, and the EuroQol 5D. Results: The mean level of resilience was found to be moderate. Both the RS and the RS-14 showed good internal consistency reliability, .90 and .87, respectively. No clear factor structure was found. Both assessments correlated with age but there was no statistically significant association with education or gender. However, a relatively weak but statistically significant correlation between the RS and the RS-14 with self-reported health was found in women. Conclusion: The Finnish versions of the RS and RS-14 can be recommended to be used in clinical and scientific settings. Gender is suggested to be taken into account in further research of resilience.

The psychometric properties of the Portuguese version of the trait form of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-T) and its relation to the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were evaluated in a large Brazilian college student sample containing 845 women and 235 men. STAI-T scores tended to be higher for women, singles, those who work, and subjects under 30 years. Factor analysis of the STAI-T for total sample and by gender yielded two factors: the first representing a mood dimension and the second being related to worrying or cognitive aspects of anxiety. In order to study the relation between anxiety and depression measures, factor analysis of the combination of the 21 BDI items and the 20 STAI-T items was also carried out. The analysis resulted in two factors that were analyzed according to the tripartite model of anxiety and depression. Most of the BDI items (measuring positive affectivity and nonspecific symptoms of depression) were loaded on the first factor and four STAI-T items that measure positive affectivity. The remaining STAI-T items, all of them measuring negative affect, remained in the second factor. Thus, factor 1 represents a depression dimension and factor 2 measures a mood-worrying dimension. The findings of this study suggest that...

The paper analyzes the psychometric properties of the G1 version of the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire, a self-report instrument designed to investigate how adolescents or adults were parented during childhood. The sample included 1451 Italian adolescents in high school. Three studies tested the scale's structure, invariance, and convergent validity. The first found slightly acceptable fit indexes for a 40-item scale measuring three factors (authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive styles); the factors presented good reliability (ρc .62-.96). Multigroup confirmative analyses found factor loadings invariant in the father version, whereas 12 items resulted not invariant in the mother version (second study). Good convergent validity was found with the Parental Bonding Index and the Parental Monitoring Scale (third study). Discussion of results is provided within the parenting styles literature.

Background: The choice of measure for use as a primary outcome in geriatric research is contingent upon the construct of interest and evidence for its psychometric properties. The Late-Life Function and Disability Instrument (LLFDI) has been widely used to assess functional limitations and disability in studies with older adults. The primary aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the current available evidence for the psychometric properties of the LLFDI. Methods: Published studies of any design reporting results based on administration of the original version of the LLFDI in community-dwelling older adults were identified after searches of 9 electronic databases. Data related to construct validity (convergent/divergent and known-groups validity), test-retest reliability and sensitivity to change were extracted. Effect sizes were calculated for within-group changes and summarized graphically. Results: Seventy-one studies including 17,301 older adults met inclusion criteria. Data supporting the convergent/divergent and known-groups validity for both the Function and Disability components were extracted from 30 and 18 studies, respectively. High test-retest reliability was found for the Function component, while results for the Disability component were more variable. Sensitivity to change of the LLFDI was confirmed based on findings from 25 studies. The basic lower extremity subscale and overall summary score of the Function component and limitation dimension of the Disability component were associated with the strongest relative effect sizes. Conclusions: There is extensive evidence to support the construct validity and sensitivity to change of the LLFDI among various clinical populations of community-dwelling older adults. Further work is needed on predictive validity and values for clinically important change. Findings from this review can be used to guide the selection of the most appropriate LLFDI subscale for use an outcome measure in geriatric research and practice.

This paper is a report of a study of the psychometric properties of the Portuguese version of the Interpersonal Communication Assessment Scale (ICAS) related to the nursing education. The interpersonal communication in Health care in general and in nursing care in particularly serves to transmit messages between the elements involved, in order to created a meaning in their interaction. The essence of nursing care is focused on interpersonal communication between nurse and the patient. The basis of professional competence in nursing is on personal qualities, the personality of the nurse, which is decisive for the acquisition of training and experience. The validation of ICAS was developed in four steps: translation, back translation, comparing the two versions and evidence of the validity of the new version. The psychometric study was carried out using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences. The non-probabilistic convenience sample was constituted of 156 students of the 2nd year of the Degree Course of Nursing (2008-2009). The psychometric study revealed high values: Cronbach alpha (ICAS: 0.939; advocacy: 0.857; therapeutic: 0.890; use of self and validation: 0.795), Pearson correlation (r=0.740, p=0.000), test of sphericity Barlett (2190.278...

The Child Feeding Questionnaire (CFQ) is a widely used measure of parental feeding practices, comprising seven factors that measure aspects of parental control over feeding and beliefs about children's obesity proneness. Parents in South Australia (N=203) completed the CFQ at their 4- or 5-year-old child's preschool health visits in May and June 2006. This study examined the factor structure and psychometric properties of the questionnaire. Initially, exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was used to examine the factor structure of the CFQ. Using EFA an additional factor could be extracted, comprising 2 items from the Restriction subscale regarding parents' use of food to reward behaviour. Several modified seven factor models of the CFQ, specified in previous research, were examined using confirmatory factor analysis and compared with an eight factor model. An eight factor model specifying an additional factor, food as reward, provided the best fit to the data, however, until replicated and validated, a seven factor model excluding the reward items is recommended for general use. The findings suggest that further work is required in the conceptualization of the Restriction subscale.; Nadia Corsini, Vanessa Danthiir, Lisa Kettler and Carlene Wilson

The few studies that have been conducted into the psychometric properties of the EATQ-R, even fewer for the longer version, highlight the fact that its structure differs from that of the original. The aim of this study is to translate and adapt the long version of the EATQ-R to Catalan, study its internal consistency and convergent and factorial validity, and compare differences in the EATQ-R by age and gender. The EATQ-R was administered to a sample of 1481 secondary school students ranging in age from 11 to 17 years. After eliminating 40 items from the 86 comprising the EATQ-R, an adjusted model was obtained with acceptable fit indices comprising 8 of the original 11 factors

Background and Objectives: Mental health problems are common in Primary Health care and clinicians require valid and reliable instruments to make good treatment plans for these patients. The Outcome Questionnaire-45 (OQ-45) was developed by Lambert and colleagues in order to help improve outcomes of treatment. The aims of this study were to examine the psychometric properties of the Swedish version of OQ-45 when administered by an automated technique and to evaluate if the OQ-45 uniquely could contribute to the description of the patients’ difficulties and needs beyond demographic characteristics and other instruments. Methods: The study comprised 816 patients with mental ill-health taking part in a large randomized controlled trial, Regassa. The OQ-45 data were collected by Interactive Voice Response IVR, a computerized, automated telephone technique. The OQ-45 consists of 45 items summarized in a total score and in three subscales; Symptoms of distress, SD, Interpersonal relations, IR, and Social role functioning, SR. Depression was measured by MADRS and health-related quality of life by EQ-5D. Results: The OQ-45 total score showed good psychometric properties, but there was little support for its three factor structure. The OQ-45 significantly predicted level of depression and health-related quality of life in patients. Conclusions: The OQ-45 contributed uniquely to the description of the patients´ problems. The results indicate that the total score of the Swedish version of OQ-45 can be valuable to use for clinicians in the field.

Introduction Attachment theory has recently been postulated as a useful framework for enhancing our understanding of the role of psychosocial and environmental factors in relation to the vulnerability, expression, and course of psychosis. In this paper we present the Spanish adaptation and psychometric properties of the Psychosis Attachment Measure (PAM), a 16-item self-report scale specifically designed to measure adult attachment in people with psychosis. Method In study 1, the PAM was adapted into Spanish following the translation/back-translation procedure and was administered to 24 early psychosis patients to evaluate its intelligibility. In study 2, the psychometric properties of the scale were assessed in a sample of 235 university students. The students completed the PAM and the Relationship Questionnaire (RQ) via an Internet website. Results Results from study 1 demonstrated that the Spanish version of the scale is semantically and conceptually equivalent to the original English version and that it is appropriate for use with people experiencing psychotic symptoms. Paralleling the findings from the English version of the instrument, results from study 2 indicated that two factors, conceptually representing anxiety and avoidance...

BACKGROUND: The Short Alcohol Dependence Data Questionnaire (SADD) has shown good reliability and validity in previous studies. In Mexico, although it is widely used in addiction treatment centers, little is known about its psychometric properties and diagnostic accuracy.OBJECTIVE: Hence, this study performed a Confirmatory Factorial Analysis (CFA) on three SADD versions (15, 14 and 12 items) and examined their operating characteristics.METHOD: The sample included 570 individuals from the 30 Addiction Residential Centers localized in the central zone of Mexico.RESULTS: The three versions showed an internal consistency of >.90, fair goodness-of-fit, and significant correlations with the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) 5.0 Alcohol dependence (AD) diagnostic criteria. The analysis of the operating characteristics revealed that each version accounted for 84-85% of the area under the curve (AUC).DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The three SADD versions possess reliability and validity properties for the assessment of the alcohol dependence syndrome (ADS) and adequate diagnostic accuracy for the improvement of patients with AD in residential settings.

the objective of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS). the psychometric soundness of the SEIS was tested. A cross-sectional survey design was used for this study. A sample (n = 341) was taken from Economical Science students from a higher-education institution. the results obtained using the cross-sectional design supported a six-dimensional factor structure of the SEIS. the six factors are Positive Affect, Emotion-Others, happy Emotions, Emotions-Own, Non-verbal Emotions and Emotional Management. A multi-analysis of variance (MANOVA) was used to determine differences in terms of biographical data. the results indicated significant differences between gender and language groups.
