Inventario Breve de Luchas Religiosas y Espirituales: Validación Inicial y Estudio Psicométrico

Palabras clave: luchas religiosas, luchas espirituales, propiedades psicométricas, validez

Resumen

Introducción: Las luchas religiosas y espirituales son conflictos psicológicos asociados a la relación con una divinidad o a las prácticas y enseñanzas particulares de organizaciones religiosas. Estas luchas pueden afectar la salud y el bienestar, provocando angustia y dolor emocional. Objetivo: El propósito de este estudio fue desarrollar y validar una medida breve que examine las luchas religiosas y espirituales (R/E) desde el marco teórico de Exline. Método: Esta investigación tuvo un diseño instrumental. Se utilizó un muestreo por disponibilidad compuesto por 312 participantes residentes de Puerto Rico. Resultados: Los análisis psicométricos confirmaron que la escala posee una estructura de cuatro dimensiones (luchas divinas, luchas interpersonales, luchas malignas, luchas intrapersonales) y una sólida confiabilidad, validez de constructo y validez convergente. Los 14 ítems cumplieron con valores adecuados de discriminación. Conclusiones: Estos resultados sugieren que el instrumento tiene el potencial para medir e identificar cuatro tipos de luchas R/E en adultos puertorriqueños. Además, permitirá el avance de nuevas investigaciones sobre las luchas R/E en Puerto Rico y América Latina.
