AbstractA questionnaire that assesses monitoring and blunting coping strategies used by individuals who have experienced a traumatic event was developed and validated. The Coping Styles Questionnaire for Traumatic Events (CSQTE) was evaluated in a clinical sample of 11 individuals (9 women and 2 men), all of whom were seeking medical advice as a result of experiencing a traumatic event. It was found that 18 of the 21 initial items from each of the monitoring and blunting scales of the CSQTE were useful for measuring monitoring and blunting. In addition, each scale exhibited good internal consistency and convergent validity. The CSQTE has the potential to become a useful tool for understanding the coping strategies individuals use after experiencing a traumatic event. Future studies might want to consider another item analysis with a larger sample of clinical and non-clinical participants.
