A Training-Model Scale’s Validity and Reliability Coefficients: Expert Evaluation in Indonesian Professional Psychology Programs


Very little information has been available on  training models  in professional psychology programs in Indonesia, despite the Indonesian National Accreditation Body recommending that scientist-practitioner models be applied in the education of psychologists. By contrast, research abounds on such training models in Western countries. This discrepancy raises the importance of developing a measurement tool appropriate for assessing  training models  in Indonesian professional psychology programs. This article describes the process of testing the validity and reliability of such a training model measuring tool in the Indonesian context. The authors used the expert evaluation method and the Aiken formula to calculate a coefficient of content validity and item’s internal consistency reliability.This process  formed a training model scale comprising 77 items with satisfactory validity and reliability indexes for measuring Indonesian professional psychology program training models.

Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Academic Motivation Scale (AMS)–Bahasa Indonesia


Validity evidence based on internal structure is important for psychological measurements and this internal structure can be evaluated by factor analysis. Two types of factor analysis are often conducted on psychometric tests: confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and exploratory factor analysis (EFA). This study compared the groupingsof the 30-item Indonesian version of the Academic Motivation Scale (AMS–Bahasa Indonesia), using both CFA and EFA. The CFA of the data sample from 1,168 undergraduates indicated that all dimensions and sub dimensions of the AMS–Bahasa Indonesia had good internal structural validity. Each subdimension, dimension, and variable of the AMS–Bahasa Indonesia fulfilled the goodness of fit criteria (RMSEA ? 0.08; GFI ? 0.9; CR ? 0.7). The EFA found that all items of the three dimensions grouped perfectly, as designed by Vallerand et al. (1992), which was shown due to the factor loading values of all items being greater than or equal to 0.4. Although there are some items found cross loading but the grouping can be  conceptually explained as why it occurs. The results of the internal consistency analysis showed that the AMS–Bahasa Indonesia is a reliable measurement (? 0.7). In conclusion, the AMS–Bahasa Indonesia is a valid means for accurately and reliably measuring academic motivation.

Guided Act and Feel Indonesia–Internet-Based Behavioral Activation Intervention for Depression in Indonesia: A Systematic Cultural Adaptation


Depression is one of the leading causes of the global disease burden, affecting millions of people worldwide. The availability of mental health treatment, however, remains very limited in many low-middle income countries, including Indonesia. Internet-based interventions are known to have the potential to deliver mental health treatment economically and appropriately according to numerous studies conducted in high-income countries. In the current study, we describe a systematic cultural adaptation of an internet-based behavioral activation intervention for depression in Indonesia, named Guided Act and Feel Indonesia. During the adaptation, relevant stakeholders were involved, including licensed clinical psychologists, mental health communities, lay counselors, and patients. The adaptation used the formative method for adapting psychotherapy (FMAP) to adapt eight important cultural elements (language, persons, metaphors, content, concepts, goals, methods, and context). The intervention was adapted from the original Dutch version called Doe en Voel, consisting of 8 structured modules that are offered in a secure online environment. The adapted version is being delivered during an ongoing randomized controlled trial with non-face-to-face support from lay counselors who work under the supervision of licensed clinical psychologists. The challenges that were faced during the cultural adaptation are discussed.

Marital Satisfaction in terms of Communication, Conflict Resolution, Sexual Intimacy, and Financial Relations among Working and Non-Working Wives


Marriage can be an important part of human development. One of the signs of a successful marriage is marital satisfaction. Marital satisfaction must be felt by both the husband and wife. However, in the current era, the role of wives who work outside the househould has been a challenge for some married couples. The aim of this study is to examine the influences of communication, conflict resolution, sexual intimacy, and financial relations on the marital satisfaction of working wives and non-working wives. The study was conducted on a total of 144 subjects, consisting of 90 full-time working wives and 54 non-working wives. Data collection was conducted by using questionnaires. Results of linear regression analysis showed a difference in factors that affect marital satisfaction in working wives and non-working wives. Marital satisfaction in working wives was influenced by communication, sexual intimacy, and financial relations. Meanwhile, marital satisfaction in non-working wives was influenced by communication and financial relations.

Psychometric Properties of Parenting Measures in Indonesia


We examined the psychometric properties of two parenting measures, the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ) and the Parent-Child Relationships Questionnaire (PCRQ) which were translated into Indonesian for use in Indonesia. The Indonesian versions of these questionnaires were completed by 514 parents and 459 parents, respectively. Participants were parents (mostly mothers) of typically developing children, who completed the measures through an online or paper-based survey. Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), parallel analyses, internal and external construct validity and internal reliability were performed on both measures. Results revealed that the translated version of the PSDQ consisted of three factors. Two of these factors reflected the Authoritative and Authoritarian subscales of the original measure; however, the Permissive subscale was not obtained. A third factor, labelled Reasoning, was extracted. The translated PCRQ was found to have the same structure as the original version of the measure. Some modifications were required for both instruments, and the modified versions of the instruments had acceptable internal consistency. Development of these translated and modified instruments will support parenting research within Indonesia.

Tomorrow Will Always Come, I Am A Last Minute Person: Validation of the Active Procrastination Scale-Bahasa Indonesia


Procrastination, a habit of delaying tasks,has long been considered to have negative effects on the procrastinator. However, Chu and Choi (2005) proposed a new form of procrastination called active procrastination,which has positive effects to the procrastinator. This study aims to validate the use of the Active Procrastination Scale (APS) in Bahasa Indonesia. In this validation, 239 undergraduate students filled out online questionnaires of APS and other measurements (i.e. GPA,  Pure Procrastination Scale (PPS), Academic Motivation Scale (AMS), and International Personality Item Pool (IPIP)-50 item) in Indonesian. The data was analysed using confirmatory factor analysis (CFA),exploratory factor analysis (EFA), reliability analysis, intra-correlation analysis, and correlation analysis with other criteria. From both CFA and EFA, it was found that all items matched the same factors as the original design by Choi and Moran’s (2009). (RMSEA < 0.08, GFI > 0.9, CR > 0.7, AVE > 0.5). In addition, all dimensions were reliable (CITC > 0.3, a > 0.6). Meanwhile, intra-correlation analysis indicated that each dimension correlated with each other,which is in line with previous findings. The same findings were also found in correlation analysis. Each dimension showed the same correlation patterns with other criteria as the prior findings. In conclusion, the APS-Bahasa Indonesia is a valid procras
