Persistent pain is a common condition. Pain affects humans in an unfriendly way since it becomes never-ending. The influences are universal and include physically, mentally, emotionally and socially affects. Different coping strategies are common to use to handle pain. There are different kinds of coping strategies, some affects in a positive way and others in a negative way. The choice of strategy is often made unconsciously. The self rating instrument Coping Strategies Questionnarie (CSQ) rates coping strategies in the use of handle pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the reliability of a short version of Coping Strategies Questionnarie. 18 participants were approached to contribute to this study by a registered physiotherapist at a rehabilitating center, focused on pain, in Norrbotten. All of them were included in the analysis of internal consistency of subscales and 13 represented test-retest. Statistic analysis consisted Chronbach’s alpha for internal consistency of subscales and t-test for reliability of test-retest. This questionnaire study was anonymous. The short version of CSQ and the internal consistency were not reliable enough in all parts of the self rating instrument. The participants used Coping self-statements and Catastrophizing most frequently to handle pain. The short version of CSQ needs further research and should be tested on additional people with persistent pain. Some parts of the instrument need more process to suit the target group in Sweden better. Handle of pain is highly individual.
