The Perceived Ability to Cope with Trauma scale (PACT) is designed to measure people's evaluation of their ability to cope with trauma. The scale includes 20 items that focus on two aspects of coping with trauma: Trauma focus (8 items) and Forward focus (12 items) (Bonanno, Pat-Horenczyk, and Noll, 2011). Participants are asked to report to what degree they would be able to use different kinds of behaviors and strategies in the weeks following a potentially traumatic event. Each item is reported on a 7-point scale (1 = not at all able; 7 = extremely able). The Trauma focus aspect includes behaviors such as: "Pay attention to the distressing feelings that result from the event" and "Face the grim reality head on", whereas the Forward focus aspect includes behaviors such as: "Stay focused on my current goals and plans" and "Look for a silver lining".. Scores are obtained for coping ability, coping polarity, and a total flexibility score (Bonanno et al., 2011).
