The current study investigated the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the Heartland Forgiveness Scale (HFS). The Turkish version of the HFS, the Ruminative Response Scale (RRS), and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) were administered to 796 Turkish university students (430 women, 366 men) with a mean age of 20.6 yr. (SD = 2.1). Internal consistency reliability was calculated and Cronbach alpha coefficients ranged between .71 and .82. Criterion validity (Pearson correlation) between the HFS and other scales ranged from -.09 to .34. Additionally, a confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to assess the fit of the standard three-factor solution of the HFS. The results suggested that the Turkish version of the HFS had adequate internal consistency, criterion validity, and reflected the standard three-factor structure, indicating that it can be reliably used to measure forgiveness among a Turkish sample.

RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY OF THE TURKISH VERSION OF THE AUTOMATIC THOUGHTS QUESTIONNAIRE
SAHIN, NH; SAHIN, N (Wiley, 1992-05-01)
The present study investigated the reliability and validity of the ATQ in the Turkish cultural context. It is hoped that with this type of cross-cultural information, the universality of the proposed cognitive constructs can be advocated more reliably. The subjects were 345 university students; the split-half reliability of the ATQ was found to be r = .91 and Cronbach's alpha was .93; and item/total correlations ranged between .36 and .69. The Turkish ATQ correlated well with the BDI (r = .75), and it discr...
The Reliability and Validity of the Lifespan Sibling Relationship Scale in a Turkish Emerging Adult Sample
Cilali, Bengu; Erdur Baker, Özgür; Bugay, Asli (Central Library of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, 2019-01-01)
The present study examines the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the Lifespan Sibling Relationship Scale (LSRS; Riggio, 2000). A total of 578 (336 female, 242 male) Turkish emerging adults participated in this study. A Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was used to test construct validity for the original six-factor model of the scale with 48 items. Results of the CFA indicated a good model fit. Furthermore, the second-order CFA result showed that the scale can be scored for both the subdim...
Revised form of the belief in Good Luck Scale in a Turkish sample
Öner Özkan, Bengi (SAGE Publications, 2003-10-01)
The aim of the study was to explore the patterns of belief in luck in a Turkish sample. For this purpose, a shorter version of Freedman and Darke's Belief in Good Luck Scale was given, including some more items related to the beliefs in 'consistent' versus 'variant' patterns of luck. This scale, together with Turkish versions of Rosenberg's measure of Global Self-esteem, Rotter's Internal-External Locus of Control Scale, and the Satisfaction With Life Scale of Diener, Emmons, Larsen, and Griffin, was admini...
Examination of metacognitive factors in relation to anxiety and depressive symptoms: a cross-cultural study
Yılmaz, Adviye Esin; Kazak Berument, Sibel; Department of Psychology (2007)
The aim of this thesis was to examine the validity of the main concepts of metacognitive theory in a Turkish sample and set the stage for metacognitive research in Turkey from the clinical psychology perspective. In addition to this, research attention was focused on two important topics remained to be empirically validated in the metacognition literature: (1) the unique contributions of “cognitive content” versus “metacognition” to the prediction of anxiety and depression symptoms, and (2) the vulnerabilit...
Employability of Psychology Graduates and their Job Satisfaction in Turkey an online survey
SÜMER, NEBİ; HELVACI, ELİF; Mısırlısoy, Mine (SAGE Publications, 2013-01-01)
The interest in studying psychology has dramatically increased in the recent decades in Turkey. However, only 60% of psychology graduates work in jobs related to psychology. Moreover, there is no data on employability and job distribution of psychology graduates or on their job satisfaction. In the current study, the authors' first aim was to assess the employability of psychology graduates, and their job satisfaction in Turkey. Secondly, they examined the specific advantages of having a postgraduate degree...
