Maladaptive styles of coping are believed to be a barrier to recovery from schizophrenia. In this study we obtained measures of coping for 133 persons with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. A cluster analysis was then performed based on those scores and produced five distinctive coping profiles. These five groups were then compared on concurrent assessments of hope, self-esteem, symptoms and social function. Multivariate and univariate ANOVA revealed that the group with a coping profile that involved a preference for both considering and acting had significantly greater levels of hope and self-esteem than groups with the other four coping profiles (p less than 0.05). The group with a preference for resigning had lesser hope, self-esteem and more depressive symptoms than another other group (p less than 0.05). (Contains 5 tables.)
