Abstract
Purpose
This study examined the validity and reliability of the Korean version of the Revised Process of Change for Weight Control Scale (POC-WCS) in adults with metabolic syndrome. Method: A methodological research design with an exploratory factor analysis for validity and correlational coefficients for reliability was used. The Korean version of the Revised POC-WCS was translated into Korean and a translation equivalency was obtained. It was tested with one hundred and fifty-one obese adults with metabolic syndrome in a university hospital. The data were analyzed using Cronbach's alpha and Guttman coefficients and a principal component factor analysis with SPSS/WIN 12.0. Result: The factor analysis identified eight factors explaining 64.7% of the total variance. The Korean version of the Revised POC-WCS included stimulus control (9 items), dramatic relief (6 items), reinforcement management (6 items), helping relationships (4 items), consciousness raising (3 items), self liberation (3 items), self reevaluation (3 items), and social liberation (4 items). The internal consistency was acceptable with Cronbach's alpha (.94) and Guttman coefficient (.92). Conclusion: The Korean version of the Revised POC-WCS had adequate validity and reliability in adults with metabolic syndrome. It can be used to assess the strategies and processes for weight control in a variety of populations with obesity.
Key Words: Metabolic Cardiovascular Syndrome, Body weight changes, Reliability and Validity
