AZANZA, Garazi; DOMINGUEZ, África J.; MORIANO, Juan A.  and  MOLERO, Fernando J.. Positive psychological capital: validation of the Spanish version of the PCQ questionnaire. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.1, pp.294-301. ISSN 1695-2294.

This study describes the construct of positive psychological capital (Luthans and Youssef, 2004) and the validation of the Spanish version of the PCQ (Psychological Capital Questionnaire) in a sample of 372 employees. This questionnaire measures four different components, although related, of the broader concept of psychological capital. These components are self-efficacy, hope, optimism and resilience. Structural equation modeling revealed that the Spanish version of the questionnaire shows a high reliability and convergent and discriminant validity. Results, and contributions, and limitations of the present study are discussed.

Keywords : Positive psychological capital; self-efficacy; hope; optimism; resiliency.
