POLISH ADAPTATION OF THE INVENTORY OF COGNITIVE AFFECT REGULATION STRATEGIES (ICARUS)
Languages of publication
The presented study was focused on assessment of psychometric properties of Polish adaptation of the Inventory of Cognitive Affect Regulation Strategies (ICARUS; originally developed by Barbara Kamholz, Adela Hayes, Charles Carver, Suzy Gulliver and Carola Perlman) in the group of 250 Polish students exposed to traumatic events. Fidelity of translation was established by application of the standard translation procedures, like back-translation, evaluated and commented by the authors on ICARUS, and bilingual retest in the group of students of English philology. Reliability was assessed on the basis of indices of internal consistency and validity by relationships with scales assessing emotions (Inventory of Emotions, developed by Diener, Smith & Fujita) and mood dimensions (PANAS inventory, developed by Watson, Clark & Tellegen) as well as with scales measuring styles of affect regulation (Mood Regulation Scales developed by Wojciszke) and coping with stress (COPE inventory developed by Carver, Scheier & Weintraub). Analyses demonstrated satisfactory psychometric properties of Polish translation of ICARUS, comparable with original version.
