The CISS measures three major coping styles:  Task-Oriented, Emotion-Oriented and Avoidance Coping.

It also identifies two types of avoidance patterns: Distraction and Social Diversion.  The CISS is available in QuikScore format.  The client’s responses automatically transfer through to a hidden scoring page where you are guided through easy calculations.

Adult Version – Suitable for clients 18 years and older, the 48-item CISS-Adult has gender-specific norms for college students, correctional populations, psychiatric patients, and various occupational groups.

Adolescent Version – Suitable for clients between the ages 13 and 18 years.  The 48-item CISS-Adolescent has gender-specific norms specific to adolescents.  Mean and standard deviations are grouped as early adolescent and late adolescent.

CISS: Situation Specific Version – The CISS:SSC is a 21-item measure for adults.  Responses are given with a designated stressful situtation in mind, such as social evaluation, change in social situation, relationship or interpersonal conflict and general stress.
