Abstract

Objectives: This study was carried out with the aim of studying the features of the Young Schema Questionnaire in nonclinical population.

Method: In a descriptive cross-sectional study 37 postgraduate male students of Shahed and Shahid Beheshti universities in Tehran who were selected using stratified random method completed the Young Schema Questionnaire-Short Form (YSQ-SF). Data were analyzed using correlation coefficient and analysis of variance.

Results: The results of the factor analysis revealed 17 factors as follows: Seven intact scales (five out of five items), three scales with four items, two with three items, and one with two items. Also, the two YSQ-SF original scales merged into one factor. The results yielded interpretable scales for all 15 schema subscales proposed by Young. These 15 subscales demonstrated good internal consistency. Higher-order principal component analysis yielded three higher order factors in line with previous findings.

Conclusion: These results are consistent with previous results based on the English, French and Dutch versions of the YSQ-SF and provided support for the cross-cultural validity of the YSQ-SF.
