LIMA, Lígia; LEMOS, Marina Serra de  and  GUERRA, Marina Prista. Estudo das qualidades psicométricas do SCSI (Schoolagers' Coping Strategies Inventory) numa população portuguesa . Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2002, vol.20, n.4, pp.555-570. ISSN 0870-8231.

This article describes the adaptation and the psychometric study of the Schoolagers' Coping Strategies Inventory (Ryan-Wenger, 1990) in a sample of Portuguese children aged 8 to 12. The authors also aimed to describe the children´s coping strategies and to examine age and gender differences. The Portuguese version of SCSI has good psychometric properties and results revealed a three-factor structure, corresponding to three types of coping strategies, which can be conceptualised as cognitive-behavioural distraction, acting out and active strategies. Results also showed that children and pre-adolescents use a wide variety of coping strategies, and that there are different patterns of use according to age and gender.

Keywords : Coping; schoolage children; inventories.
