En este estudio se han examinado las propiedades psicométricas de la versión española del Vancouver Obsessional Compulsive Inventory (VOCI) en dos muestras españolas de población no clínica. El análisis factorial exploratorio replicó la estructura de seis factores del cuestionario original. Los resultados también mostraron que se trata de una medida fiable. Por otra parte, este instrumento mostró una adecuada validez convergente con otra medida de síntomas obsesivo-compulsivos y con un instrumento que evalúa creencias relevantes en el trastorno obsesivo-compulsivo (TOC) y una buena validez discriminante con medidas de depresión, ansiedad y preocupaciones.

Psychometric properties of the Vancouver Obsessional Compulsive Inventory (VOCI) in two non-clinical Spanish samples. In this study, the factorial structure and psychometric properties of the Vancouver Obsessional Compulsive Inventory (VOCI) were examined in two non-clinical Spanish samples. An exploratory factor analysis replicated the original six-factor structure. Moreover, results showed that the Spanish VOCI is a reliable measure. Also, this version had good convergent validity with other obsessive-compulsive symptom measures and with an instrument that assess beliefs that are relevant to the obsessive-compulsive disorder. Lastly, this version showed good divergent validity with measures of depression, anxiety and worries.
