Resumen

QUEVEDO FONSECA, Carlos R.; AMARO CHELALA, José R.  y  MENENDEZ LOPEZ, José R.. Making and validation of the stress vulnerability questionnaire. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2005, vol.34, n.3. ISSN 0138-6557.

A psychometric test was constructed and validated to determine stress. The test denominated stress vulnerability questionnaire was basically based on the psychometric battery of the systemic approach method for evaluating stress. An initial questionnaire composed of 63 items and 3 subscales was made to conduct a pilot study. On depurating the questionnaire, the final form contained 39 items and it was subjected to a study to find out reliability and validity. A trifactorial structure coinciding with the previous design was determined. The internal consistency was 0.92 according to Cronbach's alpha and 0.90 according to Spearman-Brown's coefficient.. A test-retest correlation of 0.97 was attained and it was also significantly correlated to the external criteria of vulnerability-neuroticism scale of Eysenck's test, Spielberg's anxiety trait and the clinical criterion. It was concluded that the stress vulnerability questionnaire is a valid and reliable instrument to measure vulnerability to stress based on the systemic approach method.
