Abstract: Objective: The purpose of the study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Chinese Cultural Beliefs about Adversity scale (CBA). Methods: The CBA was administered in a sample of 275 Chinese parents experiencing economic disadvantage. Results: The CBA was found to be internally consistent. Consistent with the conceptual framework, factor analyses showed that two stables factors were abstracted from the scale. The scale and subscale scores of the CBA showed correlation with parental attributional beliefs of children's success and failure to effort and luck, respectively, thus supporting the construct validity of the measures. Conclusions: The CBA is a reliable and valid measurement tool to measure Chinese cultural beliefs about adversity from the perspective of parents in the context of poverty.
