Two Revised Measures of Coping for Individuals with Late-Deafness
Meyer, Jill M.; Kashubeck-West, Susan; Portela, Lindsay
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v32 n1 p66-76 2018
Purpose: The present study had two goals: (a) to examine the revised structures of these measures to determine the reliability and validity when used in a sample of individuals with latedeafness, and (b) to examine differences in coping style in individuals with late-deafness across race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status (SES), level of hearing loss, communication style, and employment. Methods: An online, quantitative survey was used to collect data from participants (N = 277) who completed the WCQ, the BC, measures of life satisfaction, and a demographic questionnaire. Results: The two revised factors from the WCQ correlated as expected with life satisfaction, demonstrating convergent validity. However, discriminant validity was not found with this measure. Four of the six revised factors of the BC correlated as expected with life satisfaction, indicating acceptable convergent validity. In addition, discriminant validity was found with this measure. A few differences in coping were found on the basis of age, SES, and gender. Conclusion: The results suggest that the BC, with the revised factors, is a solid measure of coping in individuals with late-deafness.
