Students' Preferred Strategies for Coping with Depressive Affect.
Franzini, Louis R.; Johnson, Brenda R.
Journal of College Student Development, v32 n6 p553-59 Nov 1991
Conducted two studies in which college students (n=241) described their methods of coping with depressive affect and evaluated efficaciousness of those methods. Five times more behavioral than cognitive strategies were reported. Ratings for perceived effectiveness for all strategies were higher than ratings of likelihood of being employed. Men's choices tended to be more aggressive than women's. (Author/ABL)
