How We Go About Measuring Coping
- these 3 are very broad classifications of coping:
1. approach/avoidance or engagement/disengagement coping
2. problem-focused coping and emotion-focused coping - distinguish 2 very broad goals
- problem-focused coping for controllable stressors
- emotion-focused coping for all stressors
3. cognitive vs behavioural modes of coping - you can cope through the thoughts you
have and through the behaviours you have
How do you study peopleʼs ways of coping?
- self-report measures
What would an item on a self-report measure say?
- When I feel stressed, I tend to run & hide (dispositional attribute, getting at coping style
or cross-situational consistency in coping)
- When I was diagnosed, I ran and hid (situationally specific coping)
Do you think that there is some fundamental consistency in the way that you
cope, or do you think that it differs depending on the situation and the stressor?
- there may be a core style you have that comes out pretty regularly and is an
expression of your personality and your temperament
- but also, each stressor is different and may require a different approach
- itʼs both
- there is a certain amount of cross-situational consistency which does arise from
temperament and personality characteristics
- certainly there is also a lot of situational coping because there are particular stressful
demands that have arisen (never dealt with it before, very severe stressor)
What would examples of general core styles be?
- optimism - silver lining, everything will be okay
- social support - almost always I will talk to someone about it, vent
- organization - plan everything out, make lists
Examples of Domains on a Self-Report Measure
- support seeking
- distancing, avoidance
- wishful thinking
