Teorie copingové flexibility a její praktické využití (při práci s dotazníkovými metodami)

[Coping flexibility theory and its practical use (when using questionnaires)]

Michaela Pavelková, Katarína Loneková

zveřejněno: 01. 07. 2022


The article deals with coping flexibility, yet incomplete theory concerning the assumption of an individual to successfully manage stressful situations, and focuses on the practical use of this theory when using questionnaires in psychological assessment. This theory is so far under-represented in the Czech literature, so the aim of this article is to present it and demonstrate its possible use in practice. Hence, the theoretical part is elaborated in more detail, which is illustrated by empirical research. The aim of the research survey is qualitative preliminary study, which could be followed by quantitative verification. The sample consists of 10 undergraduate students in the field of psychology. The theoretical concept of the Balanced Profile was chosen for the research part. The SVF-78 questionnaire is used here and research concepts for its individual stress strategies were obtained using the open coding method. The results of the research bring new contexts for psychotherapeutic and counselling interventions in working with the SVF-78 questionnaire and a basis for follow-up work.
