The Coping Inventory is a measure of adaptive behavior.

It comes in two forms. For assessment of 3–16 year olds there is an Observation Form and for 15 years and older there is a Self-Rated Form.

The Observation Form assesses the behavior patterns and skills employed to meet personal needs and adapt to environmental demands. It focuses on two categories of coping behavior, Self and Environment. In addition, it measures three dimensions of coping style:

  • Productive—Nonproductive
  • Active—Passive
  • Flexible—Rigid

The Self Report Form provides an Adaptive Behavior Index, a profile of coping styles, and a list of those behaviors that facilitate or interfere with adaptive coping.
