Primary and Secondary Control among Children Undergoing Medical Procedures: Adjustment as a Function of Coping Style.
Weisz, John R.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n2 p324-32 Apr 1994
Obtained reports of coping and goals from 33 children being treated for leukemia. Coping strategies were classified as primary control coping (attempts to alter objective conditions), secondary control coping (attempts to adjust to objective conditions), or relinquished control (no attempt to cope). Secondary control coping was positively associated with general behavioral adjustment and illness-specific adjustment. (Author/NB)
