The revised edition of the OSI measures domains of occupational adjustment that include not only occupational stress, but also stress associated with the client’s inability to cope effectively with stressors in the workplace and other settings. It also assesses coping resources available to the client to combat the effects of stressors and to alleviate strain.
Assess three dimensions of occupational adjustment
- Six scales (i.e., Role Overload, Role Insufficiency, Role Ambiguity, Role Boundary, Responsibility, Physical Environment) measure occupational stress and make up the Occupational Roles Questionnaire (ORQ).
- Four scales (i.e., Vocational Strain, Psychological Strain, Interpersonal Strain, Physical Strain) measure psychological strain and make up the Personal Strain Questionnaire (PSQ).
- Four scales (i.e., Recreation, Self-Care, Social Support, Rational/Cognitive Coping) measure coping resources and make up the Personal Resources Questionnaire (PRQ).
