Two-factor Self-Forgiveness Scale (Griffin 2016)

 


Assessment name:  Two-factor Self-Forgiveness Scale

Scale overview: The Two-factor Self-Forgiveness Scale is a 10-item self-report measure of two factors of self-forgiveness: Decisional Affirmation of Values(DAV), Emotional Restoration of Esteem (ERE). The names of the two factors represent the dual-process model of self-forgiveness.

Author:  Brandon Griffin

 Response Type: Items are rated on a 7-point scale of agreement from 1 = Strongly Disagree to 7 = Strongly Agree.

Scale items

Each of the two factors are assessed based on responses to five items. DAV items focus on thoughts about one’s wrongdoing and ERE items assess feelings about oneself related to the wrongdoing.

Psychometric properties

Griffin provides extensive findings in his dissertation (2016). The first two studies support the two-factor structure. Study two includes evidence supporting criterion-related validity. Data analyses support adequate internal consistency and test-retest reliability.

Availability:

The full set of 10-items is available in the author’s dissertation.
