This research report a preliminary analysis of the internal validity of the short form of the Social Problem Solving Inventory-Revised in a sample of 366 university students from a private university in Lima, Peru. It was compared the correlations short-long form and the coefficients of internal consistency with established theoretical estimates as a baseline; additionally, the correlations were corrected for correlated errors. After of apply the adjustments to the observed coefficients, the results indicate high shared variance on the subscales and acceptable reliability coefficients, except for Positive Orientation to Problems score. The psychometric support is acceptable, but it is requested an ongoing research for get reliability and validity evidences.
