Arslan, Coskun
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v10 n1 p25-43 Win 2010
The purpose of this study was to investigate the anger and anger expression styles with respect to coping with stress and interpersonal problem-solving. The participants were 468 (258 female and 210 male, between 17-30 years old) university students. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients and multiple hierarchical regression analysis were used. As a result of the study, it was found that there was a negative relationship between trait anger and problem focused coping (p less than 0.05), a negative relationship between anger in with problem-focused coping, and seeking for social support (p less than 0.01), a negative relationship between anger-out with avoiding (p less than 0.01) and problem-focused coping (p less than 0.05) and a positive relationship between anger control with problem-focused coping and avoidance (p less than 0.01). However there was a positive relationship among approaching problems in a negative way, lack of self-confidence, unwillingness to take responsibility and trait anger, anger in, anger out (p less than 0.01) while a negative relationship between anger control (p less than 0.01). A negative relationship among constructive problem-solving and trait anger (p less than 0.05), anger-in (p less than 0.01), and a positive relationship between constructive problem-solving and anger control (p less than 0.01) were found. And, there was a negative relationship between insisting-preserving approach and anger-in (p less than 0.05), while there was a positive relationship between insistent preserving approach and anger-out, anger control (p less than 0.01). Besides, it was found that coping with stress and interpersonal problem-solving significantly explains the trait anger and the anger expressing styles. (Contains 6 tables.)
