(Revised) Thai version of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (r- Thai MSPSS)
MSPSS was originally developed by Prof. George Zimet. A Thai version was developed by Drs. Tinakon and Nahathai Wongpakaran. The revised version was modified, and has tested for its psychometrics in both clinical and non-clinical samples. This revised version gave better psychometrics to be used with Thai people.
The revised Thai version is not the revised MSPSS, but the revised version of the Thai MSPSS (Wongpakaran T & Wongpakaran, 2011.) that Drs. Wongpakaran developed. To get the revised scale, please contact Dr. Wongpakaran by email: email@example.com
The researchers are advised to contact Prof. Zimet for his permission to use the original version.
