重大なライフイベントの意味づけに関する尺度の作成:—同化・調節の観点から— Development, reliability, and validity of the Assimilation and Accommodation of Meaning Making Scale
Interest in meaning making following stressful life experiences has continued to increase. However, there are to date, no instruments to assess the process of meaning making. Therefore, the Assimilation and Accommodation of Meaning Making Scale (AAMS) was developed to measure the orientation and strategy of assimilation and accommodation during the meaning making process. Moreover, the reliability and validity of the scale were investigated. Undergraduate students (<i>N</i>=726) participated in the study. Explorative factor analysis of their responses to the newly developed AAMS revealed two factors. Moreover, the scale was internally consistent. Examining the relationship between the AAMS and other scales verified the concurrent and construct validity of the AAMS. These results suggested that the AAMS has sufficient reliability and validity. The limitations of the study and possible uses of the scale are discussed.
