Research Outcomes about Coping in Swedish populations: the Ways of Coping Questionnaire (WCQ)

Abstract [en]

The lecture will present an overview of the development and results from the Swedish version of the WCQ. The process of translation of the original questionnaire into Swedish is described as well as the results of the first Swedish study about coping with illness-related problems in persons with chronic diseases compared with a group healthy subjects. The first findings indicated the importance of further testing of the psychometric properties of the WCQ. Further psychometric evaluation of the WCQ included 510 subjects (patients, their next of kin and students). The result indicated modest support for the 8-factor model and deviation from equality of factor structures among the sub-samples. The 8-factor model was more adequate in describing clinical than non-clinical samples. A modification of the WCQ with a version of 45 items was made based on the results, which is now current in several studies.
