The interplay of occupational engagement and individual coping capacity is very important. A methodological tool that provides the means for such an analysis which includes psychological aspects of the health is the "Arbeitsbezogenes Verhaltens- und Erlebensmuster" questionnaire (AVEM: Pattern of Work-related Coping Behavior). This assessment instrument allows for a subscale-level evaluation as well as differentiation between four types of work-related coping behaviours that have been obtained by cluster analysis. Comprehensive analyses involving 7693 teachers have established the health relevance of this cluster differentiation. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
