SANTOS, Zeimara de Almeida; SOARES, Adriana Benevides  and  MOURAO, Luciana. Confirmatory and invariance analysis of the social skills Inventory for Difficult Therapeutic Situations for the Clinical Context. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.2, pp. 182-190. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to perform exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis of the Inventory of Social Skills for Difficult Therapeutic Situations with a sample of Psychology professionals, as well as to evaluate the invariance of the measure for professionals of different therapeutic approaches. Participants were 212 therapists (85% women). Confirmatory factor analysis verified a unifactorial structure as the most reliable for the data, with 12 items that comprise a set of rule breaking behaviors by the patient. Multigroup invariance analysis confirmed that the inventory achieved configural, metric, scale and residual invariance for the frequency scale of social skills, considering for the two different approach groups: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other approaches. The Inventory of Social Skills for difficult Therapeutic Situations presented psychometric properties that enable the use of the measure for identifying situations considered difficult by professionals.
