Abstract

Interest in child well-being has been growing over the past years, but there is a lack of measures to evaluate it. In order to provide an instrument grounded on a multifaceted perspective of child well-being, we developed for Italian children an adaptation of the Comprehensive Inventory of Thriving (Su, Tay, & Diener, 2014). The aim of this study is the evaluation of the psychometric features of the Comprehensive Inventory of Thriving for Children (CIT-Child). It was administered to 626 Italian children, aging from 8 to 11. A subsample filled out also the Scale of Positive and Negative Emotions (Diener et al., 2010), and the Multidimensional Student’s Life Satisfaction Scale (Zappulla et al., 2014). Confirmatory factor analysis showed the goodness of fit of a 12-factor model, and correlational analyses proved that CIT-Child measures constructs that are similar, but not identical, to what is measured by the other instruments.
