About this Research Topic
Coping strategies are behavioral and cognitive tactics used to manage crises, conditions, and demands that are appraised as distressing. Such mechanisms are a vital part of human behavior and necessary for successfully navigating our way through life. Coping strategies can be grouped into two broad categories. Emotion focused coping strategies attempt to adjust the emotions caused by a stressful event, whereas problem solving coping strategies attempt to modify the environment or situation.
