The Coping Expectancies Scale (CES) is a vignette measure of mood- regulation expectancies for coping strategies; the French version of the CES is comprised of expectancies for problem-focused, cognition-focused, emotion-focused, and distraction-focused coping. These subscales generally correlated in expected ways with measures of conceptually-related constructs, including adaptive and maladaptive coping, as measured by the French version of the Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, and optimism, as measured by the French version of the Life Orientation Test.
