Abstract (2. Language): 
Adaptation of the Personal Growth Initiative Scale. The study of validity and reliability. This study investigated the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Personal Growth Initiative Scale (PGIS; Robitschek, 1998). The sample of study consists of 336 high school students. Results of language equivalency showed that the correlation coefficients between Turkish and English forms ranged from .72 to .82. Results of exploratory factor analysis showed that the 9 items loaded on one factor. The total variance explained was 37% and factor loadings ranged from .48 to .70. Fit index values of the model were RMSEA=.055, NFI=.96, CFI=.98, IFI=.98, GFI=.97, AGFI=.94. For concurrent validity the correlations between PGIS and Self-compassion Scale were calculated. PGIS was found positively related to selfkindness, awareness of common humanity, and mindfulness. The internal consistency reliability coefficient of the scale was found as .90 and the test-retest reliability coefficient was found as .94. Also the corrected item-total correlations ranged from .37 to .57. These results demonstrate that this scale is a valid and reliable instrument.

Bu araştırmanın amacı Bireysel Gelişim İnisiyatifi Ölçeği’nin (BGİÖ; Robitschek, 1998) Türkçe formunun geçerlik ve güvenirliğini incelemektir. Araştırma 336 lise son sınıf öğrencisi üzerinde yürütülmüştür. Dilsel eşdeğerlik çalışmasında, BGİÖ’nün Türkçe ve orijinal formlarında bulunan maddeler arasındaki korelasyon katsayıları .72 ile .82 arasında bulunmuştur. Açımlayıcı faktör analizinde 9 maddenin toplam varyansın %37’sini açıkladığı ve maddelerin tek boyutta toplandığı görülmüştür. Ölçeğin faktör yükleri .48 ile .70, madde toplam korelasyonu katsayıları ise .37 ile .57 arasında sıralanmaktadır. Doğrulayıcı faktör analizinde tek boyutlu modelin iyi uyum verdiği görülmüştür (RMSEA=.055, NFI=.96, CFI=.98, IFI=.98, GFI=.97, AGFI=.94). Uyum geçerliği çalışmasında bireysel gelişim inisiyatifinin özsevecenlik, paylaşımların bilincinde olma ve bilinçlilik ile pozitif ilişkili olduğu saptanmıştır. BGİÖ’nün iç tutarlılık güvenirlik katsayısı .90, test-tekrar test güvenirlik katsayısı ise .94 olarak bulunmuştur. Bu sonuçlar BGİÖ’nün Türkçe formunun geçerli ve güvenilir bir ölçme aracı olduğunu göstermektedir.
