Abstract
Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) is a general instrument to measure positive and negative aspects that affect the quality of helping professionals. Although ProQOL has been widely adapted, only few have evaluated its psychometric properties and predominantly used in medical nurse populations. The current study aims to evaluate the psychometric properties of ProQOL in special education teachers which often exposed by secondary trauma and burnout as helping professional. Research uses quantitative study to assess the correlation between ProQOL with Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS) and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS), difference in demographic data though ANOVA and Independent Sample T-Test, and item validity through confirmatory factor analysis. Result shows that there is evidence of content validity through expert judgement. Criterion-related (concurrent) validity was evidenced by coefficient correlations of ProQOL, DASS, and SWLS, as predicted by theory. CFA ProQOL shows adequate model fit to data, with respect to some items being eliminated from the original instrument. Overall, ProQOL in special education teacher that has been adapted to Bahasa Indonesia has adequate evidence of content validity, construct validity, and criterion related validity.
