Paul T. P. Wong and dr. Lilian Jans-Beken developed a new scale to measure existential gratitude and used it in a new study to assess its reliability and validity. Together they wrote an article Development and preliminary validation of the Existential Gratitude Scale (EGS) which was published today in Counseling Psychology Quarterly!
The scale can be found on our Materials section under Research. If you use it in your study, please let us know so we can report about it on our news page.
