Abstract


This study investigated the validity and reliability of the Turkish Version of the Early Life Experiences Scale (ELES; Gilbert, Cheung, Grandfield, Campey, & Irons, 2003). The sample of study consists of 373 high school students. Results of confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated that the fifteen items loaded on three factors (threat, submissiveness, and unvalued) and the three-dimensional model was well fit (x²=163.71, df=86, p=0.0000, RMSEA=.049, NFI=.95, CFI=.97, IFI=.97, SRMR=.043). Factor loadings ranged from .36 to .68 and the corrected item-total correlations of ELES ranged from .33 to .60. Internal consistency reliability coefficients were .57 for threat subscale, .71 for submissiveness subscale,.78 for unvalued subscale, and .85 for overall scale.  These results demonstrate that this scale is a valid and reliable instrument.
