ABSTRACT

This study validated the Korean version of the Suicide Intervention Response Inventory-2 (K-SIRI-2) scale which has been developed to measure counselling skills handling suicidal crisis. We evaluated internal consistency, test-retest reliability, discriminant validity, and its construct validity of K-SIRI-2 using a forward-backward translation method. The data were collected from 127 nursing students in a nursing school. The coefficients of Cronbach’s alpha and test-retest reliability were measured as 0.84 and 0.98, respectively. Discriminant validity showed a significant difference between the 2nd and 4th grade nursing students. Construct validity was also confirmed because the mean K-SIRI-2 score was significantly improved after the intervention. The findings demonstrate that K-SIRI-2 is an appropriate instrument to measure the effectiveness of suicidal intervention programs.
