Control Beliefs, Coping Efforts, and Adjustment to Chronic Pain.
Jensen, Mark P.; Karoly, Paul
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n3 p431-38 Jun 1991
Examined adaptation to chronic pain in 118 patients. Control appraisals, ignoring pain, using coping self-statements, and increasing activities were positively related to psychological functioning. Control appraisals, diverting attention, ignoring pain, and using coping self-statements were positively related to activity level for patients reporting relatively low levels of pain severity. No predictor was related to medical services utilization. (Author/NB)
