Data analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation, Cronbach alpha coefficients, and the confirmatory factor analysis. The convergent and divergent validity were used based on the correlation of PROCSI with DAS, DASS, OCI-R, and RBI. The mentioned analyzes were performed based on SPSS 21 and Lisrel 8.80.
Results: The internal consistency of PROCSI was in the range of 0.42 to 0.82. The confirmatory factor analysis of PROCSI showed that six factors of it have an appropriate fitness.
Conclusion: It seems that it seems that the PROCSI has good validity and reliability to use in Iranian couples.
