Adapting the Counseling Center Assessment of Psychological Symptoms into Turkish
MetadataShow full item record
This article describes the adaptation and validation of a Turkish version of the Counseling Center Assessment of Psychological Symptoms (CCAPS). The original CCAPS was developed for use in pre- and post-treatment assessments and designed in a way to allow monitoring of ongoing treatments. So far it has met the clinical, research, and administrative needs of college counseling centers. Our adaptation study involved translating the scale, establishing construct equivalence between the target and the source language, and estimating the reliability of the scores. The findings supported an eight-factor model and provided substantial validity evidences of the CCAPS-Turkish based on construct and criterion. The reliability of the eight subscales’ score is similar to that of the original version. A Rasch analysis provided further evidence on the constructs. The results of the study are discussed in relation to the mental health issues and the cultural context of university students in Turkey.Telif hakları gereğince yayın erişime kapalıdır.
