The short version of ruminative response scale: reliability, validity and its relation to psychological symptoms

This study was designed to examine structural validity and reliability of short version of The Ruminative Response Scale (RRS) developed by Treynor, Gonzalez, and Nolen-Hoeksema (2003). Participants were 549 (307 girls, 242 boys) volunteering high school students. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Internal Consistency Coefficient (Cronbach Alpha), and Convergent validity were used to assess cross-cultural equivalence of this particular instrument. Based on these results, The Ruminative Response Scale appears to be valid and reliable scale for Turkish samples.


The Turkish version of the Ruminative Response Scale An examination of its reliability and validity
Erdur Baker, Özgür (2012-01-01)
The aim of the present study was to examine the validity and reliability of the two forms of the Ruminative Response Scale (RRS) proposed by Nolen-Hoeksema and Morrow (1991) and Treynor, Gonzalez, and Nolen-Hoeksema (2003). In addition to The Ruminative Response Scale (RRS), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was administered to a sample of 387 Turkish university students in order to test the criterion validity as suggested by previous studies. The results of confirmatory factor analysis revealed good fit ...
A procedure on ground motion selection and scaling for nonlinear response of simple structural systems
Ay, Bekir Özer (2012-10-01)
This study presents a ground-motion selection and scaling methodology that preserves the basic seismological features of the scaled records with reduced scatter in the nonlinear structural response. The methodology modifies each strong-motion recording with known fundamental seismological parameters using the estimations of ground-motion prediction equations for a given target hazard level. It provides robust estimations on target building response through scaled ground motions and calculates the dispersion...
Comparison of response surface methodology and the proposed Weibull model for inactivation of Listeria innocua by high hydrostatic pressure
BUZRUL, Sencer; CEVIK, Mete; Alpas, Hami (Wiley, 2008-02-01)
Published inactivation data of Listeria innocua by high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) were used to compare the prediction capabilities of response surface methodology (RSM) and the proposed Weibull model. A quadratic function was used for the secondary modeling of the reduced Weibull model's time constant parameter so that this model consisted of pressure, temperature and time just like RSM equation. Application of each model was shown separately. The usability, differences and similarities of these models wer...
The Effects of Implementing Different Ground-motionLogic-tree Frameworks on Seismic Risk Assessment
Ay, Bekir Özer (null; 2018-06-21)
This study investigates the link between probabilistic seismic hazard assessment and corresponding loss estimations by using different ground-motion logic-tree frameworks from reliable large scale seismic hazard projects as well as the logic-tree framework established in this study. The predictive models selected for these logic trees are expected to represent the center, body and range of ground-motion intensity measure estimates. Regarding with the hazard component of risk assessment, the ground motion in...
A comparison of the GIS based landslide susceptibility assessment methods: multivariate versus bivariate
Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (2004-03-01)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and to compare the results of multivariate (logical regression) and bivariate (landslide susceptibility) methods in Geographical Information System (GIS) based landslide susceptibility assessment procedures. In order to achieve this goal the Asarsuyu catchment in NW Turkey was selected as a test zone because of its well-known landslide occurrences interfering with the E-5 highway mountain pass.
