This book presents a collection of psychological and health-related assessment tools designed and developed in China. These instruments are formulated with a specific focus on their applicability and cultural appropriateness to Chinese people living in China or overseas as well as other Asians who may share a Chinese cultural heritage. The methods and procedures on item and scale formation are described in detail with respect to their relevant cultural background and underpinning beliefs. Results on psychometric properties and validation are thoroughly presented. Each instrument is included with an English Translation.
