Stress, Coping, and Behavioural Problems among Rural and Urban Adolescents.
Elgar, Frank J.; Arlett, Christine; Groves, Renee
Journal of Adolescence, v26 n5 p577-88 Oct 2003
Rural/urban differences were studied in self-reported stress, coping, and behavioral problems in adolescents. Levels of stress and ways of coping were similar between the two groups. However, urban males reported more conflict and externalizing behaviors than females and rural males. Results suggest that adolescents may utilize many coping strategies that serve little benefit in terms of behavioral outcomes. (Contains 45 references and 4 tables.)
