LINS, Taiane; ALVARENGA, Patrícia; MENDES, Deise Maria Leal Fernandes  and  PESSOA, Luciana Fontes. Brazilian Adaptation of the Coping with Children's Negative Emotions Scale (CCNES). Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp. 196-204. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of this study was to adapt the Coping with Children's Negative Emotions Scale (CCNES) to the Brazilian population and check its preliminary psychometric parameters. The study was developed in six stages: translation of the original scale; assessment of the scale translated by experts; assessment of the scale translated by the target audience in focus groups; back-translation; pilot; data collection with one hundred mothers of children aged between three and eight years; evaluation of internal consistency and correlations among the seven investigated maternal reactions. Satisfactory internal consistency values were obtained, except for the discomfort reactions. Furthermore, the dimensions of maternal reactions showed significant correlations in each of the subscales (supportive and non-supportive practices of children's emotional expression). The preliminary assessment of CCNES indicates its good operation, signaling that the adapted version can be submitted to the validation process.

Keywords : adaptation; CCNES; emotion socialization.
