It responded satisfactorily to the requirements of relevance and completeness, and appeared to be fully applicable to everyday clinical practice. Consistent with the English findings 8our estimates of construct validity highlighted the adaptive ie, Distraction, Ignoring pain sensations, Distancing from pain and Coping self-statements and maladaptive properties Catastrophizing and Praying of most of the subscales 47 Testing the penultimate version: The present study reports the adaptation of the CSQ-Revised and its validation in a sample of previously uninvestigated Italian patients with chronic pain.

The factor structure of the Coping Strategies Questionnaire.

Journal List Pain Res Manag v. The translation proved to have good factorial structure, and its psychometric properties are similar to those of the original and other adapted versions. Two translators, whose first language was Italian, each independently translated the English version into Questinnaire, keeping the language colloquial and compatible with a reading age of 14 years.

The sociodemographic characteristics of the participants are presented in Table 1. No significant effects were found for any of the subscales Table 3. It was also expected that the CSQ-Revised adaptive and maladaptive strategies would be statistically significantly and positively related to adaptive and maladaptive strategies taken from another coping questionnaire, respectively. The factorial structure of the CSQ-Revised was confirmed, and the satisfactory item-scale correlations enabled us to include all of the 27 items, as originally proposed 7.

Empirical dimensions of coping in chronic pain patients: Based on the findings of the original developers, Guarding, Resting and Asking for assistance were considered to be maladaptive strategies because they are more illness-focused, while the remaining five subscales were considered to be adaptive Open in a separate window.

Although it had good reliability and validity, it showed an unstable structure 3 — 5 that has been hypothesized to be mainly due to difficulties in measuring differences in cognition between different clinical settings, disorders and pain problems 6. There were several limitations to the present study.

The items derived from the English CSQ-Revised were translated with the aim of retaining the concepts of the original while using culturally and clinically fitting expressions 7. The Coping Strategies Questionnaire CSQ was developed in by Rosenstiel and Keefe 3 using a pool of items reflecting coping strategies frequently reported by patients and deemed to be important by researchers and clinicians involved in the management of pain.

The Chronic Pain Coping Inventory: Catastrofismo 1718192021 Chronic pain is characterised by physical dysfunction, disability and mood alterations 1. This procedure was performed in accordance with international guidelines Other outcome measures Numerical Rating Scale: Two independent bilingual translators whose first language was English back-translated the initial translation; they did not have medical backgrounds and were unaware of the concepts being explored.

The Chronic Pain Coping Inventory However, the CSQ-Revised version has yet to be adapted and psychometrically analyzed in Italian subjects, thus limiting the opportunities for researchers and clinicians to share the validated outcomes of chronic pain patients. The clinical and sociodemographic findings are largely consistent with those found by the original developers of the CSQ-Revised, being representative of subjects with chronic pain 67.


A total of patients were invited to participate, of whom accepted, resulting in a response rate of Development and preliminary validation.

Therefore, it appears to be crucial to identify the cognitive factors that may promote adaptive functioning despite the presence of pain, such as coping strategies ie, the use of cognitive and behavioural techniques to manage stressful eventsbecause these can help to copung differences in adjustment among subjects experiencing chronic pain, determine cognitive strengths and weaknesses, identify treatment targets and predict outcomes 2.

Spine Phila Pa ; Strategie di coping Distrarsi 12345: The questionnaire was translated into Italian using a process of forward-backward translation involving four translators.

Results of confirmatory factor analysis of the factorial validity of the Coping Strategies Questionnaire — Revised. This model adequately fits the data obtained from our sample, which suggests that coping strategies can be thoroughly described as a process with six components.
