Purpose: Assess social problem-solving ability

Age: 13+ years

Time: 15–20 minutes (10 minutes for the Short version)

Social problem-solving ability has implications for all areas of life, including interpersonal and work-related relationships.

The Social Problem-Solving Inventory–Revised (SPSI–R) inventory helps determine an individual’s problem-solving strengths and weaknesses so that deficits can be addressed and treatment progress can be tracked.

It is a self-report instrument that consists of a long (SPSI–R:L) and short (SPSI–R:S) version. Both versions are available in hand-scored format with MHS QuikScore Forms. With QuikScore Forms, raw scores are easily calculated and converted to standard scores.


  • Positive Problem Orientation
  • Negative Problem Orientation
  • Rational Problem Solving
  • Problem Definition and Formulation
  • Generation of Alternative Solutions
  • Decision Making
  • Solution Implementation and Verification
  • Impulsivity/Carelessness Style
  • Avoidance Style

The short version (SPSI–R:S) produces scores for the same five scales as the long version (SPSI–R:L), but does not include the Rational Problem Solving subscales. It is ideal when time is limited or when clients are completing a large test battery.

This instrument is suitable for educational, healthcare, corrections, or business environments with people who want to explore and develop their social problem-solving abilities.
