Propiedades psicométricas de la escala Bads Short-Form (Bads-Sf) en población Colombiana
Bianchi Salguero, Javier Mauricio | 2019
The objective of this research was to estimate the psychometric properties of the Behavioral Activation for Depression Scale Short Form (BADS-SF) in a Colombian sample of 388 participants divided randomly into two groups (n = 194). The results show that it has adequate levels of reliability estimated based on Cronbach's alpha and McDonald's Omega, as well as evidence of content validity, significant correlations of high magnitude with other measures such as EROS (r = .693), the scale of depression of ZUNG (r = -. 620) and the full version of BADS (r = .774). In the AFE, the BADS-SF showed a factorial structure with two dimensions that explain 54.2% of the variance in agreement with that reported in the literature, as well as adequate goodness-of-fit indexes in the CFA for a two-factor model with elimination of item 8. This scale presents adequate psychometric properties of reliability and validity that allow its use in the Colombian population in the Clinical context, although susceptible to improvement.
