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 discriminated successfully between the symptomatic and asymptomatic groups. Factor analysis revealed five factors that were similar to those found in American samples. Nevertheless, some differences were noticed in the relative strength of the factors and in the distribution of items into factor clusters.

Psychometric properties of the turkish version of the internalized homophobia scale
Gençöz, Tülin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-10-01)
The current study examined the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Internalized Homophobia Scale (IHS; Herek, Cogan, Gillis, & Glunt, 1997) in gay men living in Turkey. Participants were 132 men in romantic, intimate, or sexual relationships with men, and they identified themselves as homosexual (n=112) or bisexual (n=20). Alpha and split-half reliability coefficients revealed good internal consistency of the scale. Consistent with the original scale, the construct validity revealed a sing...

Bugay, Asli; Demir, Ayhan Gürbüz; Delevi, Raquel (SAGE Publications, 2012-10-01)
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...
Workplace Sexual Harassment Perceptions in the Turkish Context and the Role of Individual Differences
Toker Gültaş, Yonca; SÜMER, HAYRİYE CANAN (Wiley, 2010-10-01)
The major purpose of this study was to examine perceptions of workplace sexual harassment in the Turkish context. In Study 1, 53 working women were interviewed to identify culture-relevant behaviors that are considered to be sexual harassment. In Study 2, the factor structure of perceptions was explored. In addition, the way in which these perceptions are related to personal variables (i.e. gender role attitudes, self-esteem, and negative affectivity) was investigated. Participants were 353 women currently ...

How three generations narrate their vicarious family stories: intrafamilial similarities, gender and cross-generational differences
Bakir-Demir, Tugce; Reese, Elaine; Şahin Acar, Başak (Informa UK Limited, 2020-04-01)
This study investigated the memory characteristics of vicarious family stories. Seventy-two families including three generations of women and men from different samples of families were recruited. Results can be described in three main sections: (a) intrafamilial similarities; (b) gender differences; and (c) cross-generational differences. For intrafamilial similarities, members of the same family showed similarities in terms of the volume and number of other-related words. For gender differences, women foc...
