Stress Management in the Health Care Setting: Matching Interventions with Patient Coping Styles.
Martelli, Michael F.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n2 p201-07 Apr 1987
Prospective preprosthetic oral surgery patients were presented with a problem-focused, emotion-focused, or mixed-focus stress management intervention. The mixed-focus intervention produced the best overall response to surgery; the emotion-focused intervention produced the lowest adjustment levels. Better adjustment and satisfaction and lower self-reported pain were obtained when coping style and intervention were matched. (Author/KS)
