dc.description.abstract The aim of this study is to present the results of the evaluating process confirming whether the proactive and preventive coping scales are both unidimensional constructs as measured by the Proactive Coping Inventory. The construct validity was empirically confirmed in part using an exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis with data from 125 graduate students from a medium-sized private university in the Southwestern United States. Moreover, item analysis and intercorrelations between the coping scales, social support, well-being and depression were carried out. The present study broadens our knowledge in the field of future-oriented behavior by which challenges are not appraised as negative threats. Instead, they are perceived positively and motivate people to overcome the stressful situations. © The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology. en
