The aim of the study was to adapt the Heartland Forgiveness Scale (HFS) developed by Thompson, Snyder, Hoffman, Michael, Rasmussen and Billings, (2005) into Turkish. In order to provide an evidence of reliability and construct validity of Heartland Forgiveness Scale (TVHFS), the internal consistency coefficient (Cronbach alpha), convergent validity and Confirmatory Factor Analyses were calculated for Turkish university sample. Internal consistency and convergent validity of TVHFS was found adequate for university sample. Results of the Confirmatory Factor Analyses (CFA) suggested that the slightly modified three factor structure of TVHFS was confirmed with the present data, indicating the cross-cultural equivalence of the TVHFS.
