Gonzales, Nancy A.; Tein, Jenn-Yun; Sandler, Irwin N.; Friedman, Ruth J.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v16 n4 p372-95 Jul 2001
Examined effects of four coping dimensions on conduct problems, depression, and achievement in multiethnic, inner- city sample of early adolescents. Found that for girls, interactions of active coping with family and community stress revealed a classic stress-buffering effect for active coping. Findings for boys did not support this effect. Avoidant coping related to more adaptive functioning at higher stress levels. (Author/KB)
