Resumen

GUZMAN, Mónica; TAPIA, María José; TEJADA, Marcelo  y  VALENZUELA, Katherine. Measuring Forgiveness in Couple Relationships: Psychometric Properties of the Transgression-Related Interpersonal Motivations Inventory (TRIM-18) in a Chilean Context. Psykhe [online]. 2014, vol.23, n.2, pp.1-12. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7764/psykhe.23.2.623.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the Spanish version of the Transgression-Related Interpersonal Motivations Inventory (TRIM-18) for measuring forgiveness in couple relationships in a Chilean context. The TRIM-18 is a self-report questionnaire that measures the respondent’s motivation for avoidance, revenge, and benevolence when faced with a relational transgression. In order to examine its psychometric properties, 3 independent non-probabilistic samples were evaluated: 2 composed of university students (N = 181 and 394) and 1 from the general community (N = 552), all from the city of Antofagasta, Chile. The results obtained make it possible to conclude that the TRIM-18 is a reliable and valid instrument for use in a Chilean context, given its adequate internal consistency indexes and good fit to a three-dimensional factorial structure. Moreover, associations were found with constructs theoretically related to forgiveness, such as a global self-report of forgiveness, relational satisfaction, and socioemotional adjustment.

Palabras clave : forgiveness; avoidance; revenge; benevolence; couple relationships.
