Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability and validity of the Turkish version
of the Co-Rumination Scale. Data were collected from two different groups of university students. The
fi rst group was composed of 256 (146 Female, 110 Male) university students. The second group was
composed of 113 (72 Female, 41 Male) university students and the sample were used to investigate the
test-retest reliability of the scale. Co-rumination scale, Rumination Scale and Demographic Information
Form were used to collect the data. The results suggested that the Turkish version of the CRS had
adequate internal consistency, criterion validity, and refl ected the standard one-factor structure. Also,
t -test analysis indicated that female students scored higher than males on co-rumination. The fi ndings
showed that the Turkish version of the scale can be reliably used to measure co-rumination among a
Turkish university students sample. These results were discussed in light of earlier research fi nding and
theoretical positions.
