&NA; This study examined the factor structure of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in three different Dutch‐speaking samples: 550 pain‐free students, 162 chronic low back pain patients, and 100 fibromyalgia patients. Confirmatory factor analyses were used to compare three different models of pain catastrophizing (one factor, two oblique factors, three oblique factors), and to investigate the invariance of the factor structure across the three different samples. The results indicated that a three… Expand
Confirmatory factor analysis of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in African American and Caucasian Workers' Compensation claimants with low back injuries
TLDR
Examination of the factor structure of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in a large, racially diverse sample of Workers' Compensation claimants with low back injuries indicated that a two‐factor model of the PCS was the most parsimonious fit to the data, particularly in the African American sample. Expand
Testing Factorial Validity and Gender Invariance of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale
TLDR
These findings support the psychometric soundness of the PCS and indicate that the gender differences found are not due to an inadequate fit of the measurement or structural model. Expand
The significant other version of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS-S): Preliminary validation
TLDR
The PCS‐S has the potential to be a useful and valid measure of pain catastrophizing in the significant others of ICPs and was related to ICP pain severity and interference as well as both spouses' depressive symptoms. Expand
Cross-cultural adaptation of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in Greek clinical population

  • Medicine
  • Hong Kong physiotherapy journal : official publication of the Hong Kong Physiotherapy Association Limited = Wu li chih liao

TLDR
The PCS factors suggested high levels of test–retest reliability, whereas Cronbachs’ α values were acceptable, and the concurrent validity of the instrument was confirmed. Expand
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale—short form: psychometric properties and threshold for identifying high-risk individuals
TLDR
The short-PCS developed on the basis of its factorial structure and the items’ correlations with key pain-related outcomes may be used in lieu of the full scale and as a brief screen to identify individuals with serious catastrophizing. Expand
Clinimetric properties of the Nepali version of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in individuals with chronic pain
TLDR
The PCS-NP is a valid and reliable instrument to assess pain catastrophizing in Nepalese individuals with chronic pain and demonstrated validity via moderate-to-strong associations with measures of depression, anxiety, and pain intensity. Expand
The child version of the pain catastrophizing scale (PCS-C): a preliminary validation
TLDR
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale for Children was adapted for use in children, and its construct and predictive validity was investigated in two studies, revealing that catastrophizing about pain had a unique contribution in predicting pain intensity beyond gender and age. Expand
Validation of the Korean version of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in patients with chronic non-cancer pain
TLDR
The K-PCS has the reliability, measurement error, and construct validity support for assessing pain catastrophizing in a Korean patient sample with chronic non-cancer pain. Expand
Coping with chronic pain : problem solving and acceptance
TLDR
The construct validity of the Illness Cognition Questionnaire is evaluated, confirming the robustness of the three-factor structure in patients with chronic pain and chronic fatigue and the usefulness of the subscale scores in research and clinical practice. Expand
Pain catastrophizing: rumination is a discriminating factor among individuals with different pain characteristic.
TLDR
The PCS showed valid, reliable, and invariant results for the sample of Brazilian adults in no pain or with different pain conditions, and adequately discriminated individuals in pain from those without pain. Expand

Factor Structure, Reliability, and Validity of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale
TLDR
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) has recently been developed to assess three components of catastrophizing: rumination, magnification, and helplessness and the ability of the PCS and subscales to differentiate between the responses of clinic and nonclinic undergraduate samples is evaluated.

The Pain Catastrophizing Scale: Further Psychometric Evaluation with Adult Samples
TLDR
Assessment of the reliability and validity of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale in adult community and pain outpatient samples showed strong evidence of criterion-related, concurrent, and discriminant validity for the PCS in the community sample. Expand
The Pain Catastrophizing Scale: Development and validation.
In Study 1, the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) was administered to 425 undergraduates. Analyses yielded a three component solution comprising (a) rumination, (b) magnification, and (c)Expand
Psychometric properties of the Multidimensional Pain Inventory, Dutch language version (MPI-DLV).
TLDR
It was concluded that the factorial structure of the three MPI parts is replicated and the reliability estimates and validity indicators are similar to those from the American and German versions; patients with high scores on the 'general activity' scale are in better physical condition and evidence was obtained that the MPI-DLV is sensitive to treatment changes.

The use of coping strategies in chronic low back pain patients: Relationship to patient characteristics and current adjustment
TLDR
Cognitive and behavioral pain coping strategies were assessed by means of questionnaire in a sample of 61 chronic low back pain patients and three factors were found to be predictive of measures of behavioral and emotional adjustment to chronic pain above and beyond what may be predicted on the basis of patient history variables.

Catastrophizing and pain perception in sport participants
Abstract Two studies were conducted to examine the relation between catastrophizing and pain in sport participants. Study 1 compared the factor structure of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS;Expand
Catastrophizing, pain, and disability in patients with soft-tissue injuries
TLDR
Findings revealed that catastrophizing, measured by the Pain Catastrophizing Scale, was significantly correlated with patients' reported pain intensity, perceived disability and employment status and was associated with disability independent of the levels of depression and anxiety. Expand
Gender Differences in Pain and Pain Behavior: The Role of Catastrophizing
This research examined gender differences in catastrophizing and pain in 80 healthy students (42 women, 38 men) who participated in an experimental pain procedure. Participants completed the PainExpand
Are fear-avoidance beliefs related to the inception of an episode of back pain? A prospective study
TLDR
Clinically, the results suggest that catastrophizing and particularly fear-avoidance beliefs are important in the development of a pain problem and might be of use in screening procedures and the idea that fear- avoidance beliefs may develop in an interaction with the experience of pain is supported. Expand
Theoretical perspectives on the relation between catastrophizing and pain.
TLDR
It is suggested that catastrophizing might best be viewed from the perspective of hierarchical levels of analysis, where social factors and social goals may play a role in the development and maintenance of catastrophize, whereas appraisal-related processes may point to the mechanisms that link catastrophization to pain experience.
