Abstract
The three objectives of this study were to evaluate the two instruments Forms of self-criticizing/attacking and self-reassuring scale (FSCRS) and Functions of self-criticizing/attacking scale (FSCS) psychometrically, to examine differences in mean scores between a clinical and non-clinical sample and to present the theoretical backgrounds for the forms.
170 students (M=20,75 SD=4,63) participated and filled out FSCRS, FSCS, PWB and ISS. A factor analysis was performed and measures of reliability and validity were examined. To explore differences in mean scores for a clinical versus a non-clinical sample independent T-tests were performed.
Satisfactory results concerning the reliability and acceptable results regarding the validity of the... (More)

170 students (M=20,75 SD=4,63) participated and filled out FSCRS, FSCS, PWB and ISS. A factor analysis was performed and measures of reliability and validity were examined. To explore differences in mean scores for a clinical versus a non-clinical sample independent T-tests were performed.
Satisfactory results concerning the reliability and acceptable results regarding the validity of the forms were found. The factor analysis showed that either a two or three factor model is suitable for FSCRS and that a two-factor model is equally suitable for FSCS. Although single items presented questionable results both FSCRS and FSCS were found to be statistically sound.
There were statistically significant differences in mean values between a clinical and non-clinical sample concerning five out of six subscales. The differences in mean scores found between a clinical and non-clinical sample were expected and support the notion that self-criticism is an important factor in various forms of psychopathology.
