About Simplified Coping Styles Questionnaire

Simplified Coping Styles Questionnaire (SCSQ; Xie, 1998): SCSQ was developed in China by Xie (Xie, 1998), based on the Problem-focused and Emotion-focused model (Lazarus & Folkman, 1984). The SCSQ (Xie, 1998) is considered appropriate for Chinese culture (Zhao, Xu, & Xie, 2006). SCSQ consists of 20 items referring to different ways of coping, with a total score range from 0 to 60. Two subscales are active coping (problem-focused) and passive coping (emotion-focused) with items 1to12 for active coping strategies (problem-focused) and items 13 to 20 for passive coping strategies (emotion-focused). Each item uses a 4-point Likert- type scale (0 = not use, 1 = use occasionally, 2 = use sometimes, 3 = use frequently) where respondents indicate how often they have used the coping strategy described in the item. The SCSQ has good validity and reliability. Correlations of two-week test-retest reliability were 0.89 for the overall SCSQ scale. Cronbach’s alpha for the entire questionnaire was 0.90, and Crobach’s alpha for the active coping subscale and passive coping subscale were 0.89 and 0.78, respectively
