ZANON, Cristian; DELLAZZANA-ZANON, Letícia Lovato  e  MENGA JUNIOR, Eduardo. Adaptation and Validity Evidence of the Ruminative Response Scale in Brazil. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.2, pp. 170-179. ISSN 1677-0471.

Rumination is characterized by a set of repetitive thoughts about symptoms, causes and consequences of depression, and the Ruminative Response Scale was developed to evaluate this construct. This study aims to adapt and present validity evidence for the scale in Brazilian Portuguese. A total of 565 undergraduate participants responded to the scale, along with the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale and the Irrational Beliefs Scale. Exploratory factor analyses indicated two dimensions (Brooding and Reflection) that correspond to those originally proposed, and Pearson's correlations indicated moderate relations with associated constructs. The present research advances the understanding of the relationship between irrational beliefs and ruminative response style, evidencing that the most pathological dimension of rumination (Brooding) has a higher correlation with irrational beliefs than the less dysfunctional dimension (Reflection).

Palavras-chave : rumination; depression; anxiety; stress; irrational beliefs.
