Korean Version of the Life Perspectives Inventory: Psychometric Properties and Implications for High School Counseling
Seo, Mi; Sink, Christopher A.; Cho, Han-Ik
Professional School Counseling, v15 n1 p15-33 Oct 2011
This psychometric study validated the "easy-to-use" Life Perspectives Inventory (LPI) for deployment with Korean high school-age students (N = 1223, ages 15-19). Using the conceptual research underpinnings derived from the positive psychology and spirituality literature, the LPI assesses qualities of nonsectarian adolescent spirituality. Item and exploratory factor analyses yielded three latent dimensions (Present-Centeredness, Connection with Higher Power, Meaning Making) with adequate internal consistency, stability, and convergent and discriminant validity. This article includes implications for school counseling practice. (Contains 4 tables.)
