FERREIRA-ALVES, Paulo Henrique; TORRES, Claudio Vaz; ANDRADE, Laura Novaes  and  MONTANI, Francesco. Self-image and compassion goals scale: adaptation for brazilian samples. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.1, pp. 541-548. ISSN 1984-6657.

The aim of this study was to translate and adapt the scale of Self-Image and Compassion goals from English to Portuguese, in the context of the Federal District Military Police (with samples N = 127 and N = 480), and seek evidence of the scale's national validity. The original scale had 13 items, and the validation procedure was developed following the cross-cultural literature recommendation. Thus, using the first sample, items went through a translation/back translation procedure, followed by the Content Validity Index computation, which obtained satisfactory levels (CVI = 0.95). An exploratory factor analysis confirmed the proposed two-factor structure, providing evidence of validity, but indicated three items that presented low factor loadings, which were later excluded. Finally, with the larger sample (N = 480), a confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the two-factor structure of the scale, after exclusion of three items from its original English version.

Keywords : goals; self-image; Compassion.
