People who work will face a variety of stressful situations and pressures. Stress experienced by workers can be caused by various factors, generally caused by external factors and internal factors of the individual itself. Existing studies tend to focus on the influence of external factors on stress conditions experienced by workers, such as environment and work situation. Meanwhile, studies focusing on internal factors as a cause of worker stress, are still not widely practiced, particularly with regard to experience patterns and work-related behavior. Measurements used to measure experience patterns and work-related behavior are also newly adapted in some countries, using the AVEM test. Considering benefits from measuring individual experience patterns and work related behavior through the AVEM test, researchers are interested in adapting AVEM tests into Bahasa Indonesia. Respondents in this study were 357 respondents, with various educational and work background. The data were collected at various locations in Yogyakarta Province. Main instrument used in this study is a work-related behavior and experience patterns test known as Arbeitsbezogenes Vehaltens-Und Erlebensmuster (AVEM Test). In addition, this study also used other measurements to be correlated as part of instruments validation, namely Sense of Coherence Scale (SOC), Parental Stress Scale (PSS), and Family Hardiness Index (FHI). Based on results and discussion, it can be concluded that AVEM test in Bahasa Indonesia and among Indonesian produce items on AVEM test is divided into 2 main dimensions, namely Engagement dimension and Resilience dimension. Meanwhile, Emotion dimension that exists as its own dimension on English version of AVEM test goes into Engagement dimension. And referring to the results of reliability estimates, it can be concluded that Indonesia version of AVEM test is reliable for use on Indonesian. In addition, referring to the results of previous analysis, it can be concluded that Indonesia version of AVEM test can be used as a tool to measure experience patterns and work-related behavior among people of Indonesia.
