Validity Assessment of Coping Styles Scale (CSS)
The present study intends to estimate the construct validity of indegeniously developed Coping Styles Scale (CSS) in Urdu (i.e. National language of Pakistan). The sample of 140 adult students with the age ranges between 18 to 25 years were randomly selected. To estimate the construct validity, the CSS was administered along with Brief Cope Scale, ICP-Subjective Well-Being Scale (ICP-SWBS), Rosenberg Self-Esteem ScaleUrdu Version (RSES-U), Perceived Stress Scale-Urdu Version (PSS-U) and Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale-Urdu Version (GSS-U). The CSS Problem Focused Coping demonstrated significant positive correlation with: adaptive subscales of Brief Cope; Life Satisfaction and Positive Affect subscales of ICPSWBS; RSES; and GSES. Further, the CSS Problem Focused Coping showed negative correlation with Negative Affect subscale of ICP-SWBS; and PSS. Moreover, the CSS Emotion Focused Coping demonstrated positive correlation with: maladaptive subscales of Brief Cope; Negative Affect subscale of ICP-SWBS; and PSS. Furthermore, the CSS Emotion Focused Coping showed negative correlation with Life Satisfaction and Positive Affect subscales of ICP-SWBS; RSES; and GSES. These results reveal good construct validity indicating CSS a valid measure of the construct of coping.
