Self-Compassion Scale-Short Form in Clinical and Non-clinical Samples
The purpose of this study is to adapt the SCS-SF scale to the Turkish language and to provide reliable and valid evidence. SCS-SF adaptation study was conducted by Raes, Pommier, Neff & Van Gucht, (2011) for clinical and non-clinical samples based on a six-factor structure. The processes in the ITC guideline were followed for the adaptation application. After the related data was collected, the factor structure of SCS-SF was tested with confirmatory factor analysis in the normal sample and validity and reliability studies were applied. Second, the factor structure of the patients that consulted to psychiatry clinic was investigated. Third, the measurement invariance was investigated with American and Turkish samples for intercultural comparison.
