El bienestar psicológico de los preadolescentes

Research on psychological well-being - as a component of quality of life - has paroduced notable developments during the last two decades. However, few instruments exist that are applicable to the study of psychological well-being among adolescents. This article presents the results of administering un instrument of this kind to a sample of 1590 Catalan adolescents between 12 and 14 years old. The instrument, Huebner's siss scale (Huebner, 1991a, 1994) had already been adapted to study a population of Spanish children (Alsinet, 1998). The results are compared to those of positive and negative affect scales administered to the same sample, and to those obtained by Huebner with a US sample. The results demonstrate good reliability, a consistent factor structure, a goodfunctioning of the scale in the Spanish population, and a pattern of answers consistent with the original results by Huebner ​
