Cuestionarios, inventarios y escalas de ansiedad social para adolescentes: una revisión crítica

ABSTRACT Aceptado en noviembre de 2002) El objetivo de este trabajo fue doble. En primer lugar, se describen los cuestionarios, inventarios y/o escalas de ansiedad social elaborados y validados para población ado-lescente {Escala de Ansiedad Social para Adolescentes, SAS-A y Cuestionario de Eva-luación de Dificultades Interpersonales para Adolescentes, CEDÍA), así como las adap-taciones para adolescentes de instrumentos originariamente elaborados y validados para población adulta anglo-parlante ^Cuestionario de Confianza como Orador, PRCS; Escala de Miedo a la Evaluación Negativa, FNE; Escala de Ansiedad y Evitación Social, SAD y Inventario de Ansiedad y Fobia Social, SPAI). En segundo lugar, se realiza un estudio comparativo a partir del cual se establecen una serie de conclusiones en rela-ción con la fiabilidad (consistencia interna y estabilidad temporal) y validez de cons-tructo (estructura factorial, relación con otros cuestionarios, relación con otros proce-dimientos de evaluación, diferenciación entre grupos y detección de cambios en pretest-postest-seguimiento) de estos instrumentos. Palabras clave; Adolescencia, ansiedad social, cuestionario, escala, evaluación, fobia social, inventario. Social anxiety questionnaires, inventarles and scalesfor adolescents: A critical review The aims of this study were two. First, social anxiety questionnaires, inventories and/or scales developed and validated in the adolescent population (Social Anxiety Scale for Adolescents, SAS-A, and Questionnaire about Interpersonal Difficulties for Adolescents, QIDA) and the adolescent adaptation of the Instruments firstly develo-ped and validated for English-speaking adult population (Personal Report of Confi-dence as Speaker, PRCS; the Fear ofNegative Evaluation Scale, FNE; the Social Avoi-dance and Distress Scale, SAD and the Social Phobia and Anxiety Inventory, SPAI) are described. Second, a psychometric comparative study about these Instruments is pre-sented, thus the reliability (internal consistency and temporal stability) and construct validity (factorial structure, relationships with others questionnaires, relationships with others assessment procedures, discrimination between groups and treatment out-come) of these instruments are compared.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate a descriptive model of stress that integrates an explanation of psychosomatic symptoms with the transactional theory of stress. A random and stratified representative sample was selected from among the students in the School of Psychology at the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, Mexico. The subjects were chosen randomly from a student directory provided by the school. A self-administered questionnaire was used that contained the psychometric properties necessary for accurately quantifying each of the variables included in the model. Results were analyzed using AMOS 5.0, employing the best probability method. Also, the structural model was compared using discrete variables only and endogenous latent variables. The results that were obtained partly confirmed the model and corroborated the impact that stress and emotional exhaustion have on psychosomatic symptoms and that self-esteem, self-efficacy, and social support have on stress. The model with discrete variables [chi square test/degrees of freedom (chi2/df)=2.87; goodness of fit (GFI)=0.985; adjusted goodness of fit (AGFI)=0.946; root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA)=0.072; incremental fit index (IFI)=0.982] has a better fit than the model with latent variables (chi2/df=3.74; GFI=0.924; AGFI=0.876; RMSEA=0.09, IFI=0.927). In both cases, the fit is adequate. The model discussed is the main contribution of this study. It is a descriptive model of psychosomatic symptoms, with a good fit, that describes 24.3% of the variance for discrete variables and 39.4% when using latent variables.

    ABSTRACT: The main aim of this research was analyzing the psychometric properties of the shortened version of Spanish adaptation of the "Cuestionario de Confianza para Hablar en Público" ( Personal Report of Confidence as Speaker, PRCS; Paul, 1966) to a sample of 788 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17. The confirmatory factorial analysis corroborated two factors: Security/Enjoy for Public Speaking and Fear to Public Speaking. Both the internal consistency (α = 0,84) and test-retest reliability (r = 0,81) were high. The correlations with the Cuestionario de Evaluatión de Dificultades Interpersonales en la Adolescencia ( CEDIA; Inglés, Méndez e Hidalgo, 2000) (r = 0,43) and the "Inventario de Ansiedad y Fobia Social" ( Social Phobia and Anxiety Inventory, SPAI; Turner, Beidel, Dancy y Stanley, 1989) (r = 0,53) were statistically significant (p < 0,001). The lack of confidence towards public speaking correlated positively with the Neuroticism scale and negatively with the Extraversion scale of the "Cuestionario de Personalidad de Eysenck" ( Eysenck Personality Questionnaire, EPQ; Eysenck & Eysenck, 1986). Females reported less confidence in public speaking, which decreased with age. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
