(Ortiz and Sedano, 2012)
A recently constructed questionnaire which evaluates the psychological adjustment according to Cencillo’s psychoanalytic principles.
The ISMOS scale (Ortiz & Sedano, 2012) consists of 32 items grouped into four factors, eight items each, measuring psychological adjustment. Each item is rated on a 4-point scale (0 = rarely, 3 = always) and higher scores indicate a better fit. The four factors are: (1) emotional level, which in this study has an α = .71, (2) practical level, which has an α = .78, (3) body level, α = .65, and (4) existential level, where α = .65. The global scale obtained an α = .89.
