description:
This instrument consists of 13 items rated on a 5-point scale ranging from 0 (not at all) to 4 (all the time). Participants indicate the degree to which they have specified thoughts and feelings when experiencing pain. The measure assesses 3 dimensions of catastrophizing: Rumination, Magnification, and Helplessness, and a total score is calculated by summing the 3 subscales. Internal consistency has been shown to be adequate to very good, with coefficient alphas ranging from .66 to .87 across subscales. [1] The PCS has been validated for both clinical and nonclinical samples.[1,2] [1] Sullivan MJ, Bishop S, Pivik J: The Pain Catastrophizing Scale: Development and validation.
