ONGARATO, Paula; DE LA IGLESIA, Guadalupe; STOVER, Juliana Beatriz  and  FERNANDEZ LIPORACE, Mercedes. Coping respones inventory. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp.383-391. ISSN 1851-1686.

The paper describes the psychometric adaptation of the Coping Responses Inventory - Youth Form - (Moos, 1993, 1995) made from a sample of high school and college students from two regions of Argentina: Buenos Aires City and San Miguel de Tucumán City. The original version was translated from English to Spanish, and then adapted to the local speaking. Afterwards, it was evaluated by expert judges. A pilot administration was conducted, ending the preliminary item depuration. Finally, a psychometric analysis was performed, studying test homogeneity, examining construct validity evidences from an exploratory factor study, and calculating internal consistency. These procedures resulted in a shorter 22-item-instrument, composed of four dimensions to measure coping strategies by approximation and by avoidance of the problem, each one in a cognitive and behavioral way.

Keywords : Coping Strategies; Construct Validity; Internal Consistency.
