Abstract

The present study examined the validity and reliability of the Japanese version of the Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations-2nd Edition™ (CISS; hereafter the CISS-J). The participants were 1,268 healthy Japanese individuals. The factor analyses yielded three major scales (task-, emotion-, and avoidance-oriented coping) corresponding to the original version. In addition, the avoidance-oriented scale of the CISS-J contained two subscales (Distraction and Social diversion), as in the original version. Cronbach's α coefficient was found to be .75-.89 for the three scales and two subscales. Results show that the CISS-J is useful for assessing the coping strategies among this sample of Japanese individuals.
