Respected Here I found information of German Version of White Bear Suppression Inventory by Wegner and Zanakos 1994

Title of Article: Differentiating unwanted intrusive thoughts fromthought suppression: what does the White BearSuppression Inventory measure?

Author: Winfried Ho ¨ping*, Renate de Jong-Meyer

In this article they discuss in detail about scale and use german version.

Abstract

The factor structure and correlational validity of a German version of the White Bear SuppressionInventory (Wegner, & Zanakos, 1994). Chronic thought suppression.

Journal of Personality

, 62, 615–640was analysed in a sample of 276 non-clinical participants. Using orthogonal rotation, a two factor solutionbest represented the underlying structure. One factor was interpreted as ‘‘Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts’’,the other as ‘‘Thought suppression’’. The full scale’s correlation with measures of depression, anxiety, andobsessive-compulsive behaviour was largely due to the Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts factor rather thanthe Thought Suppression factor. The Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts factor correlated negatively withavoidant coping. Neither factor correlated with self-disclosure. The theoretical meaning of separatingthought intrusions from thought suppression is discussed, leading to the recommendation of differentialassessment of these constructs.
