Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze psychometric properties of the Spanish version of Attitudinal Beliefs Questionnaire about Suicidal Behavior CCCS-18 (Ruiz, Navarro-Ruiz, Torrente, & Rodríguez, 2005). The participants were 277 subjects, 81.2% (225) women and 18.8% (52) men. The average age was 39.95 years old (SD = 15.9). A confirmatory factor analysis was performed to test the adequacy of the four-factor model proposed by the authors. As a result it was obtained a three-factor model (χ2/df = 1.96; CFI =.98; sRMR =.060; RMSEA =.059), with indices reflecting adequate goodness of fit. The reliability of the test using the omega coefficient showed satisfactory values (ω h =.95, CI 95% = [.94,.96]). The results indicate a close relation between the CCCS-18 dimensions and the suicidal tendency, showing discriminant validity properties. Predictive validity was also found in the significant correlations between the measures obtained in the questionnaire and a risk index resulting from the suicidal ideation predictor variables that were part of a logistic regression equation; CCCS-18 (r =.26, p <.001), F1, Legimization and terminal disease (r =.163, p <.01), F2, Moral dimension (r =.22, p <.001) and F3, Suicide itself (r =.252, p <.001).

CONCLUSIONS: The CCCS-18 shows reliability and validity, as well as being a test of easy and brief application.
