Результаты адаптации короткой версии методики выраженности киберхондрии на российской выборке
In recent years, our country and the whole world have faced a situation of a large-scale epidemic
caused by the COVID‑19 virus, which created favorable conditions for the development of cyberchondria. The
aim of the study is to theoretically substantiate the attention of researchers to the phenomenon of cyberchondria
and to adapt the methodology for studying the severity of cyberchondria (CSS) in the Russian sample.
The results of the exploratory factor analysis of the study data showed full compliance with the structure of the
original questionnaire: 5 scales were identified, the validity of which was confirmed by confirmatory factor
analysis. All scales showed an acceptable level of reliability in terms of internal consistency. During the test of
convergent validity, explainable relationships were found between the scales of the questionnaire and indicators
of tolerance for uncertainty, psychological well-being and addiction to social networks.
