Title: Values, Ethics and Theoretical Perspectives of the Hartford Social Competency Scale-II: Factorial Structure and Reliability of a Portuguese Version
Authors: Daniel, Fernanda; Espirito-Santo, Helena
Abstract: Social work practice with the older population demands assessing gerontological competencies,
for which values and ethics are central. This study aimed to test the adjustment of
the Portuguese version of the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Competency Scale II subscale鈥
values, ethics and theoretical perspectives (GSWCS-II-VEPT) to a bifactor structure
and to analyse its reliability in a sample of social workers. The study enrolled 534 social
workers employed in older adults鈥 care organisations. The confirmatory factorial analysis
showed that the items presented factorial loads more than 0.60, and the bifactorial component
model fitted well with the data. The two components consisted of 鈥榥uclear competencies鈥
and 鈥榮pecialised skills鈥. The GSWCS-II-VEPT presented excellent reliability (Cronbach鈥檚
a录0.90). However, high interfactor correlations demanded the test of a single-factor solution.
The single-factor model did not fit the data as well as the two-factor solution, and
the Akaike information criterion value was smaller in the two-factor model, indicating a
superior fit. The results support adequate psychometric properties of GSWCS-II-VEPT in
evaluating ethical skills, values and theoretical perspectives in Portuguese social workers
and can be used as a tool for self-evaluation of these professionals鈥 ethical behaviour.​
