Dyadic Interaction And Adaptation To The Stresses Of College Life
Miller, James C.; Janis, Irving L.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, 20, 3, 258-264, May 73
Mutual interaction and prior contact were hypothesized to be more effective in reducing stress and facilitating coping. Results confirm these predictions only with respect to class achievement scores among mutual dyads. On all other variables, mutual interaction appears to interfere with the process of adaptation. Prior exposure of subjects did not affect adaptation on any of 12 variables measured. (Author)
