This paper summarizes the outcomes of a study aimed at creating a Russian version of the Contingencies of Self-Worth Scale (CSW) by J. Crocker and adapting it in a Russian sample. The theoretical context to which the scale refers is built around the idea of the importance of taking into account the foundations upon which a person bases his/her self-worth. The paper describes the adaptation procedure and stages (791 subjects partic- ipated in the process, 309 males and 482 females, with an average age of 20.5 years), presents results of inter- nal consistency assessments (Cronbach's alpha ranges between 0.67 and 0.84), discriminative ability (indices ranging from 0.55 to 0.86), test-retest reliability (the Spearman correlation coefficient 0.54 to 0.79, p < 0.001), and construct validity. The analysis of psychometric features in the Russian version of the scale revealed the following: the questions in each of the seven scales are consistent and have good discrimination ability; the scale measures what it claims; the results are stable across time; the factor structure of the technique confirms the selection of the seven bases of self-worth. Therefore, the study proved that the Russian version of the scale can be used in research on the bases of self-worth.
