Social Coping among Gifted High School Students and Its Relationship to Self-Concept.
Swiatek, Mary Ann
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v30 n1 p19-39 Feb 2001
Studied social coping among gifted high school students using a revised Social Coping Questionnaire (M. Swiatek, 1995). Results for 212 gifted students show that females were more likely than males to deny giftedness and maintain high activity levels, while males were more likely to use humor for coping. Results also indicate that problem-focused social coping strategies are more adaptive than emotion-focused, denial-based strategies. (SLD)
