Abstract

This study aimed to adapt the Traumatic Grief Inventory-Self Report (TGI-SR) to Turkish in a sample of 403 bereaved individuals. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis indicated a correlated two-factor structure for the 18-item version. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient was .94 for the entire scale. Correlation analysis indicated that the TGI-SR was positively correlated with grief-related symptoms. To test discriminant validity, Latent Profile Analysis was performed, and profiles significantly differed from each other in terms of the impact of event, depression, anxiety, and stress levels. Findings showed that the Turkish version of the TGI-SR is a valid and reliable tool.
