Description
The CISS measures three types of coping styles. It helps you determine the preferred coping style of an individual and contributes to your overall understanding of the relationship between that individual’s coping style and his or her personality. Results are useful for treatment and intervention planning.

How to Use the Assessment
The CISS includes separate adolescent and adult forms. Both are available in handscored format using MHS QuikScore™ Forms. The CISS: Situation Specific Coping measure is also available. This component focuses on a specified event or situation. Each form takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

CISS : Adolescent
The adolescent version of the CISS is suitable for individuals between the ages of 13 and 18. It uses gender-specific adolescent normative data.

CISS : Adult
The adult version of the CISS is suitable for individuals who are 18 years of age and older.

CISS: Situation Specific Coping (CISS: SSC)
The CISS: SSC is a 21-item measure for adults. It examines a designated social situation, such as a change in social situation, change in a relationship, or a personal conflict.
