Age Differences in the Use of Coping Mechanisms.
McCrae, Robert R.
Journal of Gerontology, v37 n4 p454-60 Jul 1982
Reports two cross-sectional studies assessing the influence of age on the use of 28 coping mechanisms. Results showed older people coped similiarly to younger people, and where they employed different mechanisms it was because of different types of stress. Middle-aged and older people used less hostile and escapist reactions. (Author/RC)
