Abstract
The purpose of this study was to psychometrically test a Swedish translation of The Shame Inventory, originally developed by Rizvi (2010).

The clinical group consisted of 26 patients from a mental health daycare center. The non-clinical group consisted of 107 individuals from a convenience sample, which 73 of them were a group from a Swedish study by Magnusson (2012). The Shame Inventory shows high internal consistency, test-retest reliability, convergent and discriminant validity. The instrument also shows a high capacity of differentiate between a clinical and non-clinical group, with a significant higher mean value in the clinical group of degree of shame. This study confirms the results and conclusion from earlier Swedish study that The Shame Inventory is a useful instrument which seems to measure different aspects of shame and constitutes a valuable contribution both for clinical and research purposes.
