Adolescents' Coping with Frightening Mass Media.
Hoffner, Cynthia
Communication Research, v22 n3 p325-46 Jun 1995
Investigates the use and perceived effectiveness of strategies for coping with scary films, coping style, and two dimensions of empathy. Confirms evidence that "blunting" is characterized by distraction or reinterpretation of scary events, whereas "monitoring" is characterized by attention to threat cues. Interprets gender differences in coping as evidence of gender role socialization of emotions. (SR)
