General Description

The CSQ-3 is a 41-item scale that assesses coping strategies for emotional events. This scale comprises three subscales: detached/emotional (22 items, 10 of them that measure emotional coping are reverse-scored), rational (9 items) and avoidance (10 items). To the question “How would you describe the way you typically react to stress” respondents rated each item on a 4 point scale (0 = “Always” to 3 = “Never”). Each of the coping factors of the Portuguese version of CSQ-3 demonstrated an adequate internal consistency, a good test–retest reliability and an adequate convergent and divergent validities.
