REBT Scale for Adolescents

REBT Scale for Adolescents for Researchers and Practitioners

Rational Emotive Self Determination Scale – Adolescents (RESD-A), to integrate two prominent theories and offer a new perspective on adolescent behavior: Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Self-Determination Theory.

The scale consistent with the theoretical model of ABC of Rational Emotive & Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyzes indicate that the scale has a three-factor structure (see below). The reliability analysis shows that the internal consistency values ​​of the scale ranged between .76 and .88. The reliability coefficients based on the test-retest method were found to be .88 for the dimension of irrational beliefs of autonomy .77 for the dimension of irrational beliefs of relatedness, and .91 for the dimension of irrational beliefs of competence. These results showed that the test-retest reliability of the RESD-A was high and the scale was able to perform stable measurements. In the external criterion validity study, the correlations of the RESD-A with the following scales was examined: Reynolds Adolescent Adjustment Screening Inventory (RAASI), The Profile of Affective Distress (PAD), The Basic Psychological Needs Support (BPNS). The results showed that the RESD-A had a range of weak to medium relationship with these three scales.
