Abstract: 

The study aims at the preliminary normalization of Social Problem–Solving Inventory. To this end, 242 boy and 248 girl students from Islamic Azad University, Roudehen branch were administered Social Problem–Solving Inventory using a 24-item scale by D’zurilla, Nezu, and Maydeu-Olivares. In the analysis of main components, five theoretical factors of social problem-solving (positive orientation toward problem, negative orientation toward problem, rational solution of a problem, avoidance and inaccuracy style) were confirmed and the results of confirmatory factorial analysis from the obtained factorial structure were supported. Correlation coefficients are indicative of a convergence validity of this questionnaire. The coefficients of Cronbach’s Alpha for the factors of positive orientation toward problem, negative orientation toward problem, rational solution of a problem, avoidance and inaccuracy style were 0.80, 0.86, 0.90, 0.84 and 0.71, respectively. The results show the stability of social problem–solving Inventory and its validity for measuring its social problem–solving questionnaire among Iranian students.
