Self-Care Behaviors and Beliefs Scale (SCBBS) Factor Analytic Study
The purpose of the study is to help us finalize items for a self-care behaviors and beliefs scale and to gather evidence for reliability and validity of the instrument. Additionally, this research will help identify protective factors for compassion fatigue and increase our understanding of the relationship of self-care and resilience to compassion fatigue, compassion satisfaction, and well-being.
The study consists of several questionnaires and should take no more than 30 minutes to complete.
