This brief self-report inventory, the CRI identifies the cognitive and behavioural responses an individual used to cope with a recent problem or stressful situation. Forms are customised to your client's age The CRI Adult is for clients older than 18 years of age; the CRI Youth is for clients ages 12-18 years.
Each has its own manual and set of forms. The Actual Form surveys the individual's actual coping behaviour, whereas the Ideal Form surveys preferred coping styles. The Ideal Form may be used to compare actual and preferred coping styles, to set treatment goals, and to monitor progress.Both forms are written at an 11 year reading level. Identify strategies and monitor treatment. Helps you identify and monitor coping strategies in adults and adolescents, develop better clinical case descriptions, and plan and evaluate the outcome of treatment.
Eight scales cover the areas of approach coping styles (Logical Analysis, Positive Reappraisal, Seeking Guidance and Support, and Problem Solving) and avoidant coping styles (Cognitive Avoidance, Acceptance or Resignation, Seeking Alternative Rewards, and Emotional Discharge). An excellent resource for clinicians and for researchers involved in teaching, research, and/or grant writing, the manual supplement includes a review of studies that have utilised the CRI to examine coping and well-being in children, adolescents, and adults.
