Introduction: Compassionate love can involve suitable social behaviors such as protection. The compassionate love scale relative to the human has been made to assess this concept.
Aim: The current study was performed to determine the psychometric properties of the revised short Persian version of the compassionate love scale relative to humans in Iranian society.
Method: The plan of the research is descriptive-correlational. The studied population includes all persons of Kermanshah city above 18-year old in 2021, who participate in this research online. In this study, 510 people were addressed by an available sampling method. The Cognitive and Affective Mindfulness Scale-revised (CAMS-R) questionnaire of Feldman et al. was utilized for convergent validity and Fear of Compassion to others (Gilbert et al.) for divergent validity. The internal consistency method was used to analyze data using Cronbach's alpha and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) for structural validity with the help of SPSS-25 and Lisrel-8.8.
Results: The Cronbach's alpha coefficient obtained 8.87 for the total scale. The compassionate love for humanity scale (CLS-H-SF) showed the positive and significant correlation with CAMS-R of 139 and negative one that fear of compassion to others was -126 (P>0.005). Also, the results of CFA showed that the single-factor structure has the suitable fitting in the studied population.
Conclusion: Validity of the revised short Persian version of the compassionate love scale relative to humans in Iranian society was confirmed. Researchers and mental health professionals can use this tool as a brief tool to evaluate compassionate love in the research and therapeutic interventions.
