The Italian Adaptation of Interpersonal Communication Competences Questionnaire
There has been a growing interest in assessing interpersonal communication competences, to understand how to empower them in specific domains. The aim of this study was to create an Italian adaptation of the Interpersonal Communication Competence Scale (ICCS), by Rubin & Martin. The study was designed to assess the structure of the ICCS and to determine the number of components needed to adequately describe the psychological constructs of Interpersonal Communication Competence in the Italian sample. The questionnaire was administered to 137 subjects. Adopting an analytic process using an exploratory factor analysis, the steps yield a seven factor solution composed of 26 items. We discussed results and future directions concerning interpersonal communication competence scale.
