MATOS, Margarida Gaspar de et al. Portuguese validation of the positive youth development short form (pyd-sf): a shorten version. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.3, pp.477-489. ISSN 1645-0086.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15309/18psd190301.

The Positive Youth Development-PYD concept highlighted the importance of strengthening internal and external developmental assets in the youth’s contexts. This paper examines the psychometric properties of PYD-Short Form (PYD-SF) and its validation for Portuguese youths. The sample included 2700 college students (73.3% girls), with a mean age of 21.3±2.79 years old. Exploratory-EFA and Confirmatory Factorial Analysis-CFA were conducted on the 34 items of the PYD-SF, a final shorten instrument (20 items) was achieved, and in the final model, CFA displayed an acceptable model fit (?2 (174)=1349.20; GFI=0.95; NFI=0.95; CFI=0.95; and RMSEA=0.05, CI(RMSEA)=0.05-0.06). The developed measure showed adequate psychometric properties (validity and reliability) to estimate PYD in Portuguese youths. Such instrument can be an advantage for its administration in larger population samples and a support for decision-making in professional practices and policies, encouraging a shift in youth care services approach: from a perspective focused on deficits/difficulties, towards a viewpoint focalized on possibilities/opportunities.
