The aim of this research was to study  the validity and reliability of the Gratitude Questionnaire -6 (GQ-6, Emmons, McCullough & Tsang,2002) in a sample of  high school students (100 girls and 100 boys) in Birjand. The validity of the questionnaire were evaluated with content validity, item analysis (item – total correlations), convergent validity and factor analysis. The reliability of the mentioned questionnaire, studied through: test–retest, Cronbach’s Alpha, and split – half reliability. The results indicated that the scale had satisfied item analysis, convergent validity, internal consistency, test–retest and split–half reliability. Factor analysis yielded one general factor. Taken together, the results of this study indicated that the GQ-6 possesses good psychometric qualities for use in Iran.

        This study aimed to design a predictive model to identification of protective and risk factors in college student at the risk of mental disorders. This research was designed according to the correlation analysis, and the sample society (560 students) was selected from 4564 students of ShahidBeheshti University using Stratified Random Sampling Method. The collected data was based on the General Health Factors Goldberg, Social Support Bakhshipoor, Piravi and Abediian, Coping Strategies Endler and Parker, the Suicide Risk Scale of Northwest Behavioral Health Research Center, and Mentor Research Institute Scale. The data was then analyzed using logistic regression.The results showed that religious beliefs, social support, and problem-focused coping strategies effectively decrease and emotion-focused coping strategies and record of mental disorders effectively increase the risk of mental disorder. The benefit of having a more-developed religious belief can decrease the odds the risk of mental disorder to than 0/34 sized (-0/66), social support to than 0/64 sized (-0/36) and problem-focused coping strategies to than 0/77 sized (-0/23), While having a record of mental disorder and emotion-focused coping strategies can respectively increase the odds the risk of mental disorder to 4.35 and 1.95. By designing a predictive model, we can reinforce the protective factors and control the risk factors in order to use them for primary preventive models.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the structural relationships of personality virtues, authentic personality and Personal Growth Initiative with wisdom acquisition in students. For this purpose, in a hypothetical structural model plan, which represented a network of direct and indirect relationships between personality virtues, authentic personality ,Personal Growth Initiative and  wisdom acquisition, 200 students (101 boys and 99 girls) of the University of Isfahan were selected by accessible sampling method. They were evaluated with Values in action inventory of strengths (VIA-72), Authenticity Scale (Wood et al., 2008) Personal Growth Initiative Scale (Robitschek, 1998), and Three-Dimensional Wisdom Scale (Ardelt, 2003). Structural equation modeling indicated that there was a positive and significant relationship between the components of personality virtue and Character Strengths; Authentic Personality; Personal Growth Initiative ;and the amount of wisdom in students .Furthermore, the findings indicated that there was a positive relationship among the components of personality virtues, authentic personality and personal growth initiative. The findings supported the appropriateness of the hypothetical structure of the variables. In addition to practical implications, the findings provided a useful framework for identifying the components affecting the process of wisdom growth and acquisition in students.
