About Tehran Coping Styles Scale
The TCSS (Besharat, 2006) is a 60-question test and assess three styles of problem-focused coping style, positive Emotional-focused coping and negative Emotional-focused coping in a 4- degree Likert scale from 1 to 4. The minimum and maximum scores of subjects in each of the test subscales will be relatively 20 and 80.
Carver, Scheier, and Weintrub (1989) studied the reliability and validity of this scale within three researches. Retesting reliability coefficients were confirmed from r=0.42 to r= 0.67 for various scales (Carver et al., 1989) was implemented for comparison of TCSS a sample of 457 students of Tehran university and Chronbach alpha coefficients of problem-focused coping style, positive Emotional-focused coping and negative Emotionalfocused coping were respectively calculated at 0.93, 0.91 and 0.89 which show good internal consistency of the scale.
Correlation coefficients were calculated for assessing retesting reliability in two turns with distance of 2 to 4 weeks. These coefficients were meaningful for problem-focused coping style, positive Emotional-focused coping and negative emotional-focused coping at respectively r=0.71, r= 0.65, r= 0.59 in the meaningful level of P<.001 which showed satisfactory retesting reliability of the scale.
