The validity and reliability of the Life attitude profile scale (life Attitude Profile Revised ‘LAP-R’), developed by Reker, in Turkish was made by Erci (2008). Life attitude profile scale is used to evaluate general feelings about the belief that life has a purpose and that events in your life have a meaning at the time when a person faces a life-threatening illness or distressed events (global purpose). The scale developed by Reker has 48 items in it. Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of Reker Life attitude profile was determined to be 0.91 (Reker 1981). Since the 18th item had low correlation values, it was excluded from the scale during the validity work done by Erci. In a 7-subscale Likert type scale 7 stand for “absolutely agree” and 1 stands for “absolutely disagree.” The Life attitude profile has 4 subscales, those are: Purpose of life, Meaning of life, Choice/Responsibility for life and Research on the meaning of life. If an individual gets high scores from Purpose of life, Meaning of life, Choice/Responsibility for life and Search of the meaning of life scales, it means that he/she has appositive Life attitude profile. The high score at Research on the meaning of life shows the correlation between meaning of life and its meaninglessness. The Cronbach Alpha value of 4 subscales of Erci’s study changed between 0.73–0.82, so the Cronbach Alpha value of the scale found to be 0.91 (Erci 2008). The Cronbach Alpha value of the scale of the current research was found to be 0.92.
