Surveyed 115 undergraduates to examine how their differing abilities to reflect upon and manage emotions could predict measures of coping resource effectiveness. Results show that generalized expectancies for alleviating negative moods predicted overall levels of perceived coping resources. Findings suggest that metaperspectives, like mood, are important components of effective coping. (RJM)
