How Do Children Cope with School Failure? A Study of Social/Emotional Factors Related to Children's Coping Strategies.
Mantzicopoulos, Panayota
Psychology in the Schools, v34 n3 p229-37 Jul 1997
Examined coping strategies employed by 187 fourth and fifth graders who encountered academic failure. Results indicate that positive copers were more likely to have an intrinsic orientation to success, to experience less negative emotions following failure, to attribute failure to unstable rather than stable factors, and to have higher perceptions of competence.
