The CISS assessment allows you to effectively measure three major types of coping styles: Task-Orientated, Emotion-Orientated and Avoidance Coping. It also identifies two types of avoidance patterns: Distraction and Social Diversion.
This 48-item inventory is available in versions for adolescents and adults.
Gender-specific norms are available for adults, college students, adolescents, correctional populations, psychiatric patients and various occupational groups.
The manual describes the development and potential uses of the CISS assessment and includes relevant examples. MHS QuikScore™ Forms enable easy recording, scoring and response profiling.
