Resumen

The study examined the adequacy of the Chinese version of the General Causality Orientations Scale in measuring motivational deficits among clients with mental illness. The scale was part of a motivational frame of reference designed to evaluate and resolve motivational deficits. The study was carried out in Taiwan, and data were collected at multiple psychiatric facilities. Based on a sample of 353 participants, the translated version was found to be internally consistent and valid. To make the scale more suitable for clinical use, a mixed category was added to the three previously suggested typological categories. It is concluded that the scale can be used in this patient population. Further research is needed to investigate temporal stability and other validity traits of the scale.
