Schwarzer, Ralf; Luszczynska, Aleksandra
Prevention Researcher, v15 n4 p22-24 Nov 2008
Proactive coping is an innovative coping theory that may help facilitate the design of educational and psychological interventions to overcome adolescent risk behaviors and to promote personal growth. It broadens stress and coping research by including positive strivings which take into account such aspects as goals, purpose, and meaning. (Contains 1 figure.)
