Background and Objectives: Over the past decade self-compassion has gained popularity as a complementary construct to mindfulness, and research on self-compassion is growing at different scopes of psychological sciences. The aim of the present study was to develop a Persian version of self-compassion scale (SCS-P) and to examine its psychometric properties.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, SCS-P, after preparation using back-translation, was administrated on 377 students from Mashhad University. The reliability of SCS-P was assessed via internal consistency, test-retest ,and item-rest correlations methods. Also, the factor structure of scale was assessed using confirmatory factor analysis .Validity assessment was done through using correlations between subscales, content, divergent, convergent, and criterion validity.
Results: Cronbach’s alpha coefficients ranging from 0.68- 0.77, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients of total scale of 0.90, test-retest coefficients ranging from 0.56- 0.71, and item-rest correlations ranging from 0.54-0.78 suggested that SCS-P had a good reliability. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis indicated acceptable items fitness. Also, the model of intercorrelation among the subscales ranging from 0.32-0.65, content, divergent, convergent ,and criterion validity showed good validity.
Conclusion: In sum, it can be said that SCS-P has good psychometric properties and is a reliable and valid instrument in research screening, diagnostic ,and therapeutic situations.
