Developing the Counselor Attitude Scale for Spirituality in Counseling: A Validity and Reliability Study

The purpose of this research is to develop the Counselor Attitude Scale for Spirituality in Counseling. The study group consists of 386 (253 female, 133 male) counselors. The methods of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses are used to determine the construct validity of the scale. A single-factor structure consisting of seven items has been obtained as a result of the exploratory factor analysis. The compatibility the one-dimensional model has with the data is tested using confirmatory factor analysis. The single-factor model has been determined to have good fit indexes as a result of the analysis (RMSEA = .04, RMR = .03, GFI = .98, AGFI = .95, CFI = .99, IFI = .99, NFI = .98). Cronbach’s alpha coefficient has been calculated as .89 for the reliability analysis of the scale and the test-retest coefficient as .88; the 27% lower-upper group t values are found to be significant (p

Bu araştırmanın amacı Psikolojik Danışmada Maneviyata Yönelik Danışman Tutum Ölçeği’nin geliştirilmesidir. Çalışma grubu 386 (253 kadın, 133 erkek) psikolojik danışmandan oluşmuştur. Ölçeğin yapı geçerliğini belirlemek için Açımlayıcı Faktör Analizi ve Doğrulayıcı Faktör Analizi yöntemi kullanılmıştır. Açımlayıcı Faktör Analizi sonucunda yedi maddeden oluşan tek faktörlü bir yapı elde edilmiştir. Tek boyutlu modelin veriye uyumu Doğrulayıcı Faktör Analizi ile test edilmiştir. Analiz sonucunda tek faktörlü modelin iyi uyum indekslerine sahip olduğu saptanmıştır (RMSEA=.04, RMR=.03, GFI=.98, AGFI=.95, CFI=.99, IFI=.99, NFI=.98). Ölçeğin güvenirlik analizlerinde hesaplanan Cronbach Alfa katsayısı .89; testtekrar test katsayısı .88 ve %27’lik alt-üst grup t değerlerinin anlamlı olduğu (p
