Abstract

This study focuses on the adaptation of the Portuguese version of the Escala de Autosilenciamiento [EAS, for its Portuguese acronym] (Neves, 2005) that has been designed to assess the use of cognitive schemas for self silencing in intimate relationships. Participants were 371 women with a mean age of 22.36 years (SD=2.69; Min=18; Max=31), who at that time were involved in affective relationships with an average duration of 39.65 months (SD=33.93; Min=10; Max=192).The exploratory factor analysis suggests a factor solution of three factors, where the first factor includes items from the silencing of the sef and divided self subscales. The second factor includes items from the care-giving subscale such as self-sacrifice. And the third factor includes items from the externalized self-perception subscale. Results of the confirmatory factor analysis show reliable global indices of fitness of the model, confirming the quality of the model in terms of adjustment to empirical data (X2/df=1.964, CFI=.862, GFI=.894, RMSEA=.051) compared to the original model. Implications for a further study of the construct validity of the scale are discussed.
