Norcross, John C.; And Others
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v42 n5 p834-40 Sep 1986
Investigated the change processes that laypersons and psychologists reported using to overcome psychological distress. Interpersonal relationships and willpower strategies were employed commonly in both samples; medication was used infrequently. Gender, education, and previous treatment were related to coping processes among laypersons. Relative to laypersons, psychologists exhibited a larger and more varied repertoire of coping strategies.
