The Coping Style Approach to Understanding and Dealing with Behavior Disorders. II. Assessment and Intervention Strategies.
Johnson, G. Orville; Boyd, Herbert F.
An instrument for assessing coping style in emotionally disturbed children and adolescents is described, and intervention strategies for use once the coping style has been identified are reviewed. The "Assessment of Coping Style" instrument consists of drawings of persons interacting in various settings through which the subject can express his coping style. Intervention strategies are discussed for some behaviors commonly seen with emotionally disturbed children in the classroom. Among the techniques recommended are removing the opportunities to continue use of the same coping style and teaching alternative, more appropriate coping styles. (SW)
