Gil, Karen M.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n2 p267-73 Apr 1992
Studied adults with sickle cell disease (SCD) participating in longitudinal study of pain-coping strategies. Eighty-nine subjects completed baseline assessment of pain-coping strategies and structured pain interviews assessing health care use and activity reduction during painful episodes. Baseline Negative Thinking and Passive Adherence were associated with greater activity reduction and more frequent health care contacts during subsequent nine months. (Author/NB)
