It was determined that the Turkish version of the questionnaire provided content validity, with the calculated I-CVI values in the range of 0.78-1.00 and the S-CVI value being 0.93. One of the items (Item 8) of the 'emotion regulator' sub-dimension of the questionnaire was removed from the Turkish version of the questionnaire because it decreased the Cronbach's alpha coefficient.
