Moreland, Angela D.; Dumas, Jean E. – Journal of Child and Family Studies, 2008
Much of the research on children's coping styles is based on a downward extension of adult coping theories.

The theory, which states that challenges call for distinct coping…

The reflections on interdisciplinarity cover several dimensions. One, among them, concerns the nature of what occurs between two disciplines.

It is this ultimate space that we propose to study, supported by Reswebers (2000) proposition, putting the…
