Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v27 n3 p206-212 2013
Objective: To evaluate the measurement structure of the Trait Hope Scale (THS) among individuals with spinal cord injury. Design: Confirmatory factor analysis and reliability and validity analyses were performed. Participants: 242 individuals with spinal cord injury. Results: Results support the two-factor measurement model for the THS with agency and pathways thinking positively associated with hope-related constructs such as self-efficacy, self-esteem, disability acceptance, and life satisfaction in the predicted direction. Conclusions: The use of the THS among individuals with disabilities is warranted for rehabilitation research and practice.
