The Ways of Coping Checklist (WCC): validation in French-speaking cancer patients

Abstract : We explore the psychometric properties of the French version of the Ways of Coping Checklist Revised (WCC-R) for a cancer patient sample. The WCC-R was completed by 622 patients and 464 completed the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). A confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) on the original factor structure did not fit the data. The sample was randomly divided into two subsamples. Exploratory factor analysis was conducted on one subsample and revealed three factors: 'Seeking social support', 'Problem focused-coping' and 'Self-blame and avoidance', including 21 items. A CFA confirmed this structure in the second subgroup. These scales correlated with the anxiety scores.
