MENDONCA, Helenides et al. Comprehensive Inventory of Thriving: Evidence of Psychometric Properties in Brazil. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.2, pp. 142-151. ISSN 1677-0471.

The Comprehensive Inventory of Thriving (CIT) is an instrument that accesses well-being, conceiving the construct from a hedonic perspective. This study evaluated the psychometric properties of the IAP in 501 Brazilian adults. The framework of analysis consisted of a combination of confirmatory factor analysis and network analysis, including reliability analysis and convergent validity. The results confirm the structure of 18 first order factors and seven second order factors from the original research. The present study also presents a third structure with four second order factors - χ2/gl=1.75, CFI=.92, TLI=.91, RMSEA=.042. Differences were detected for the fit considering the gender of the participants, where the model obtained presented a better fit for men. The CIT has convergent validity, correlating positively with happiness and flourishing at work. Therefore, the Brazilian version of the CIT presents initial evidence of validity for use with adults in Brazil.

Keywords : thriving; happiness; flourishing at work; comprehensive inventory of thriving.
