NEVES COUTO, Ricardo; NUNES DA FONSECA, Patrícia  and  DE MEDEIROS, Emerson Diógenes. Questionnaire on Forgiveness in Diuorce-Separation: Adaptation and Evidence of Validity. Av. Psicol. Latinoam. [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.1, pp.183-196. ISSN 1794-4724.

Through two studies, we aimed to adapt the Questionnaire on Forgiveness in Divorce-Separation (Cuestionário de Perdón en Divorcio-Separación - CPD-S) to the Brazilian context, providing evidence of factorial validity and internal consistency. In study 1, participants were 204 divorced individuals with a mean age of 41.98 (SD = 11.99), 74% women, who answered CPD-S and demographic questions. The exploratory factor analysis showed a one-factor structure, explaining 55.92% of the total variance, and a Cronbach's alpha of .79. In study 2, participants were 200 divorced individuals equally distributed across gender with a mean age of 38.72 (SD = 11.51), answering the same instruments as in study 1. Confirmatory factor analysis results corroborated the one-factor structure, with a Cronbach's alpha of .73. Furthermore, the factorial invariance across gender and current relationship status was tested. It can be concluded that the results show evidence of factorial validity and internal consistency in addition to measuring the construct across gender and current relationship status.
