The purpose of this study was to adapt the self-hate scale (SHS; Turnell et al., 2018) into Turkish in a community sample, and test the validity and reliability of the measure. The study was conducted with 234 individuals. After the translation procedures, the language equivalence was examined, and a significant positive relationship was found between the Turkish and English forms. Findings of the reliability and validity analyses indicated that the Turkish SHS confirmed seven items in one factor with good factor loadings. Good fit values and reliability coefficients were determined with the SHS-Turkish Form. Self-hate was positively correlated with self-disgust, behavior-based self-disgust, physical appearance-based self-disgust, depression, anxiety, and interpersonal sensitivity. Self-hate also indicated a negative correlation with self-compassion. Simple linear regression analyses results showed that self-hate predicted depression, anxiety, and interpersonal sensitivity scores. These results demonstrated that the SHS-Turkish Form can be validly and reliably performed to Turkish culture.
