Resumen

Existe en la actualidad un creciente interés de la promoción del bienestar en los contextos educativos, lo que ha llevado a diversos autores a proponer modelos para evaluar el bienestar y la creación de instrumentos en esta línea. Uno de los instrumentos utilizado para evaluar bienestar adolescente es la escala EPOCH, basada en el modelo PERMA y que comprende las dimensiones de engagement, conectividad, felicidad, optimismo y perseverancia.  La presente investigación tuvo por objetivo adaptar la Escala de Bienestar Adolescente EPOCH elaborada por Peggy Kern, Lizbeth Benson, Elizabeth A. Steinberg y Laurence Steinberg (2016). Se recolectaron datos de 1558 estudiantes entre 11 y 18 años de edad, pertenecientes a cuatro establecimientos educativos de la región de Antofagasta, Chile. Se estudió la capacidad discriminatoria de los ítems, así como también la estructura factorial del instrumento. Los resultados obtenidos muestran un comportamiento psicométrico aceptable y una estructura similar a la planteada por las autoras. Podemos concluir que la escala EPOCH es una herramienta útil para la evaluación del Bienestar de Adolescentes, en contextos educativos chilenos.
