Both Beck and Yufit have developed indices of risk for suicidal groups. An investigation with 86 university students explored the concurrent and convergent validity of both scales. The current study reports moderate correlations between these two measures as a test of concurrent validity. In addition, both authors argue for the importance of time perspective in the development of these tests. The Hopelessness Scale was found to correlate well with other attitudinal measures of time perspective. The correlational pattern of the Time Questionnaire presented a less coherent pattern of association across temporal orientation, extension, and temporal attitude scales.
