This study was aimed to validate the Italian version of the Children’s Coping Strategies Checklist-Revision1 (CCSC-R1; Ayers & Sandler, 1999). Seven hundred and forty-seven youngsters (50.5% boys) from two age groups (children: aged 9-10; early adolescents: aged 11-14) participated in the study. Dimensionality of the CCSC-R1 was explored by means of confirmatory factor analyses and testing alternative models. The scale internal consistency and invariance over age and gender were examined, as well as gender- and age-related differences in the CCSC-R1 scores. The scale concurrent validity was explored by investigating the associations of the CCSC-R1 dimensions with forms of involvement in bullying and social status among peers in a subsample (N = 255). Analyses provided evidence that a five-factor structure model was most effective. Internal validity of the scale and its partial scalar invariance over age and gender were confirmed. Several of the CCSC-R1 dimensions were associated with involvement in bullying and social status in the expected directions.

Abstract

This study was aimed to validate the Italian version of the Children’s Coping Strategies Checklist-Revision1 (CCSC-R1; Ayers & Sandler, 1999). Seven hundred and forty-seven youngsters (50.5% boys) from two age groups (children: aged 9-10; early adolescents: aged 11-14) participated in the study. Dimensionality of the CCSC-R1 was explored by means of confirmatory factor analyses and testing alternative models. The scale internal consistency and invariance over age and gender were examined, as well as gender- and age-related differences in the CCSC-R1 scores. The scale concurrent validity was explored by investigating the associations of the CCSC-R1 dimensions with forms of involvement in bullying and social status among peers in a subsample (N = 255). Analyses provided evidence that a five-factor structure model was most effective. Internal validity of the scale and its partial scalar invariance over age and gender were confirmed. Several of the CCSC-R1 dimensions were associated with involvement in bullying and social status in the expected directions.
