-social resources: social spport etc
-coping resources that are personal: personality etc
-strategies( how do u behave/change the situation )= cognitive/denial /selective or
positive comparisons. Etc.
Sense of coherence:
-very positive view. Its fatalistic. U believe anything that happensd lead to sth good.
it was meant to be. Form of coping resource
Hardiness (Kabosa)
-3 characteristics:
-they try to b actively involced in life activities. See change as beneficial. See it as a
challenge.
-ifure a hardy person its good.
Sense of control (SOC)
-wat happens to me is upto me. I have control over wat happens to my life. No one
else is controlling my fate.
-personal powernessness( nothing is in our hands, and nothing we can do abt it.)<-
opposite to it.
-mastery etc. they allmean having high sense of control.
Mirowsky and Ross
-most imp coping resource.
-(too much sense of control is bad . )
Other explanations:
-flexibility increases ur sense of control. If sth goes wrong, u try to change
thesituation. If life gives u lemon, make lemonade.
-too much trust aint good.
doesnt mean everyone wid high sense of control has lower distress.
Basic pattern wat it looks like. As sense ofcontrol increases, distress decreases. Until
a point where theres a slight upturn. Theres only a certain level upto which it
decreases distress. Too much instrumentalism/sense of control isnt good.
SOC: main effect:
-they’re part of sense of control.
-the more the things thatd happen to ur lifemore awards etc, increase in SOC.
-ple not having high sense of control, theydont try to cope, dont try to change it.
-if ure good in this life, ull b good in the after life (before marx)
