Psychometric Properties of the Antisocial Process Screening Device in a Non-Clinical Sample of Turkish Children
Eremsoy, C. Ekin; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray; Kazak Berument, Sibel (2011-05-29)

APSD is a 20-item scale that evaluates antisocial behaviors and the presence of psychopathic traits in children between 6-13 years of age. Study 1 was designed to check the internal consistency and test-retest and inter-rater reliabilities. Despite satisfactory test-retest and inter-rater reliability coefficients, the Cronbach a...

However, research examining theoretically based etiological factors for disordered eating via validated assessment measures is limited. The current study aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire-4-Revised (SATAQ-4R) in a sample of Turkish college women. Exploratory factor a...

A total of 492 freshman students at Middle East Technical University aged 16-29 years filled in the Turkish translation of the CASES, which included 21 items. The alpha coefficient for the Turkish version of CASES was .82 and CASES co...

YILMAZ, ARZU AKMAN; Gençöz, Tülin; Wells, Adrian (Wiley, 2008-11-01)
The purpose of the present study was twofold. First, to examine the psychometric properties of the Penn State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ) and the Metacognitions Questionnaire-30 (MCQ-30) in a Turkish sample. Second, to investigate metacognitive predictors of pathological worry and obsessive-compulsive (o-c) symptoms in this group. The sample included 561 non-clinical participants. Consistent with non-English versions, the Turkish version of the PSWQ was found to have a two-factor structure. The MCQ-30 was sh...
