OLIVEIRA, Marina Cardoso de et al. Career Counseling Self-Efficacy Scale (CCSES): Adaptation and validity evidences. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.3, pp. 371-381. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to adapt and obtain validity evidence for use of the Career Counseling Self-Efficacy Scale (CCSES) in Brazil. One hundred twenty-six career counselors participated in the study, of both sexes, from five regions of Brazil. The adaptation and validation process was performed in two stages: content validation and factorial validity. The results indicated that the adopted analytical procedures partially confirm the theoretical structure of the original instrument, with four dimensions. The reliability indicators were satisfactory for both the total scale and for the subscales. The adapted scale is more condensed than the original, consisting of 19 items. Thus, the Brazilian version of the CCSES proved to be psychometrically suitable for use as a diagnostic tool for career counseling self-efficacy and in future research with career counselors in Brazil.

Keywords : career counseling; self-efficacy; measuring instruments.
