Abstract

This module was developed based on the findings from the needs analysis phase and content analysis phase. Based on the needs analysis findings, the level of aggressive behaviour among Islamic secondary school students (n = 200) was at a moderate level. This study aimed to measure the validity of content of the entire module by experts and to study the overall reliability of the module. This module comprises of three units and seven strategies based on the Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) theory and is integrated with Abdullah Nasih Ulwan's approach to address students' aggressive behaviour. To measure the validity of the content, the certification method of 15 experts was involved in the design of the module and 10 experts were involved in the module development. For that purpose, a pilot study was conducted and questionnaires were distributed to 16 registered counselors as respondents in this study. The results showed that this module had a high content validity index value of over 85% and Cronbach's Alpha coefficient of Islamic Brief Therapy Module was high which was at .99 as measured by Rasch Measurement Model using Winstep software version 3.68.2. In conclusion, the Islamic Brief Therapy Module is a new contribution to Malaysia’s guidance and counseling practitioners and is suitable for use in the local context. The findings from the analysis have statistically proven that these items have a high degree of validity, reliability and should be used by counselors in Malaysia.
