AGUIAR, Carolina Villa Nova  and  BASTOS, Antonio Virgílio Bittencourt. Positive interface work and family: proposal of instrument and validity evidence. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.1, pp. 48-58. ISSN 1677-0471.

This paper aims to propose an instrument for measuring the positive interface between work and family. To this end, two empirical studies were conducted. The first sought to reach a first version of the measure, applying it to a sample of 200 workers in the state of Bahia. Exploratory Factor Analyzes (EFA) was conducted and the best indicators were selected. The second study aimed to refine the investigation of the measure through application in a new sample, this time composed of 446 workers from different regions. The analysis procedures involved EFA and Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The results showed the two-factor model as the best representation the dimensionality of the construct (X2/gl = 2.12, GFI = 0.87, CFI = 0.91, RMSEA = 0.07). The final version of the measure consisted of 19 items: nine referring to the positive work-family interface (α = 0.90) and 10 to the positive family-work interface (α = 0.87). The proposed measure may contribute to the perspective of positive psychology in organizations.

Keywords : positive work-family interface; positive family-work interface; validation.
