The Perceived Strain Scale (PSS). Part I: conceptual model

The Perceived Strain Scale (PSS). Part I: conceptual model

International Journal of Sport Psychology 25(4): 381-395

The need exists for a tangible measure of the amount of strain being experienced under varying stressful demands, for example, in competitive sport situations. To meet this need, the Perceived Strain Scale (PSS) has been developed. The article outlines the conceptual model upon which the scale is based. The PSS takes cognizance of task demands (external stressors) and the individual's perception of ability to cope with those demands (internal response).
