Styles of Coping with Handicap in Mentally Retarded Adults.
Graser, Horst; And Others
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v10 n2 p127-38 1987
Four coping styles demonstrated by mentally retarded adults are postulated: the positive-passive style (high norm orientation with little tendency to get attention); negative-passive style (high tendency to get attention); assertive style (low norm orientation, high stigmatization, and low tendency to get attention); and defensive style (low stigmatization and low tendency to get attention).
