This study investigated the reliability of the Turkish version of the Perceived Social Support (PSS) from Friends (PSS-Fr) & Family (PSS-Fa) scales, the Scale for Interpersonal Behavior (SIB), & the Suicide Probability Scale (SPS). Both test-retest & internal consistency reliability estimates were computed. Results clearly support the use of the Turkish version of these scales for assessing perceived social support from friends & family, assertiveness & suicide risk. (34 refs.)
