Protocol - Coping Styles - Adult
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.
The Coping Responses Inventory (CRI) is a proprietary instrument and may be purchased from Psychological Assessment Resources (PAR®), Lutz, Florida.
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 persons 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.

This is a measure of the coping styles that an individual might use in response to a recent problem or stressful situation.
The coping scales employed in this instrument can be used for research and clinical purposes to evaluate how well individuals cope with recent problems and difficult situations. They have been used effectively in several fields of study, including alcoholism, depression, work stress, and aging.
