Protocol - Coping Styles - Adult

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

This is a self-report inventory that includes 48 questions about how an adult copes with problems and stress. The protocol includes eight scales that fall into two categories: approach coping styles (logical analysis, positive reappraisal, seeking guidance and support, and problem solving); and avoidant coping styles (cognitive avoidance, acceptance or resignation, seeking alternative rewards, and emotional discharge). These scales are based on either cognitive or behavioral strategies.

Protocol:

The Coping Responses Inventory (CRI) for Adults kit includes a manual, item booklets, and answer forms. There are two types of forms—an actual form and an ideal form. The actual form includes questions about the person's actual coping behavior and the ideal form includes questions about preferred coping styles.

The individual is asked to complete the self-report inventory by marking responses on the answer sheet. The responses may be scored via a grid on the attached carbonless paper.
