A Theoretical Perspective on Coping with Stigma.
Miller, Carol T.; Kaiser, Cheryl R.
Journal of Social Issues, v57 n1 p73-92 2001
Uses existing theory and research on general stress and coping responses to describe responses to stigma-related stressors and discuss the adaptiveness of these responses. Research suggests that different stressors evoke different responses from different individuals. Stigmatized people have different life experiences than nonstigmatized people, and thus are likely to have at least some different coping skills. (SM)
