Matos, M., Pinto-Gouveia, J., Gilbert, P. Duarte, C., & Figueiredo, C. (2015)General Description
The OAS2 is an economic, valid and reliable measure of external shame. The OAS2 is a shorter form of the widely used measure – the Other as Shamer scale, developed using experts’ item ratings and Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The OAS2 consists of 8 items, which replicate the unidimensional structure of the OASand reveal a good fit. The OAS2 has good internal consistency, similar to the longer version. The OAS2 has good concurrent and divergent validity, being highly correlated with the OAS. The OAS and OAS2 have very similar significant correlations with measures of internal shame, psychopathology and anger, with no significant difference between them.
