Grup Ortamı Anketi (GCQ) grup psikoterapisi araştırmalarında en çok kullanılan ankettir. GCQ, grup üyelerinin grubun terapötik ortamı hakkındaki algılarını ölçer. GCQ’nun Yükümlülük alma, Çatışma ve Kaçınma’dan oluşan üç alt ölçeği bulunmaktadır. Bu çalışma, GCQ’yu Türkçeye çevirmiş ve adaptasyonunu yapmıştır. Elli psikoterapist, dört günlük grup psikoterapisi eğitimine katılmıştır. Dördüncü günün sonunda GCQ ve Çok Boyutlu İlişki Ölçeği Türkçe versiyonu uygulanmıştır. GCQ ve GCQ’nun faktör yapısı Temel Bileşenler Analiz yöntemiyle eksen döndürme tekniklerinden varimaks tekniği ve Doğrulayıcı Faktör Analizi kullanılarak incelenmiştir. Geçerlik, güvenirlik, ve GCQ’nun faktör yapısı incelemeleri GCQ’nün Yükümlülük alma, Çatışma ve Kaçınma alt faktörlerinden oluştuğunu göstermiştir. Madde 8 anketten çıkarıldığında veriler modele en iyi şekilde uymaktadır. Cronbach alpha seviyeleri şu şekildedir: .78 (Çatışma), .73 (Yükümlülük alma) ve .59 (Kaçınma). Ölçeğin yapı geçerliği Çok Boyutlu İlişki Ölçeği Türkçe versiyonu ile korelasyonları hesaplanarak incelenmiştir. GCQ’nun Türkçe adaptasyonunun (GCQ-T) geçerliği ve güvenilirliği gösterilmiştir. GCQ-T’nin faktör yapısı ölçeğin orijinalinin faktör yapısına benzemektedir.  Ölçeğin psikometrik özellikleri önceki çalışmaların bulgularıyla karşılaştırılarak tartışılmıştır.


 

The Group Climate Questionnaire-Short Form (GCQ) has been the most frequently used instrument in the group psychotherapy research. The GCQ measures group members’ perceptions of the group’s therapeutic environment. This study translated and adapted the GCQ into Turkish. Fifty psychotherapists joined a four­day training on group psychotherapy. Factor structure was analyzed by employing Principal Component and Confirmatory Factor Analyses. Psychometric properties including reliability, validity, and factor structure of the GCQ indicated a three factor structure including Engagement, Conflict, and Avoidance. The data fit the model best without including Item 8 under the Engagement subscale. Cronbach alpha levels were .78 (Conflict), .73 (Engagement), and .59 (Avoidance). Construct validity was established using the Multidimensional Relationship Questionnaire.  Turkish adaptation of the GCQ was shown to be valid and reliable. The GCQ-Turkish had three factors, similar to the original version. Psychometric properties were discussed with comparison to the previous studies which utilized the GCQ.
