Constructing an Instrument to Measure Motives of Self-Harm Behavior Inventory for Juvenile Delinquents in Jordan

Auther : Amal A. Al-Zoubi Faisal Khalil Alrabee Omar M.Alshawashereh

The study aimed at constructing a valid and reliable instrument to assess the motives behind self-harm behavior among juvenile delinquents (MSHI/JD). The Motives of Self-Harm Inventory was administered to (31) juvenile delinquents. The mean age of the sample of the study was (16.3) years.
To accomplish the objectives of the study, an instrument was built, which consisted of two parts: part 1 consisted of (12) items, and part 2 consisted of (35) items distributed on (4) dimensions. The reliability index was found by using test- retest and Cronbach Alpha. The validity for this instrument was obtained and assessed by using experts' judgments. The instrument is reliable and valid to measure the inherent motives of deliberate self-harm for juvenile delinquents in Jordan, and it can be safely used to evaluate the motives for deliberate self-harm behavior for the juvenile delinquents in Jordan. Such research may lead to producing new and more comprehensive measures of self-harm. The study recommends conducting a similar study on females' samples.
Key words: Motives, Self-Harm Juvenile Delinquents, Mental health, Jordan.
