Example text

While it could be argued that attempts to classify coping actions all have their roots in the distinction first made by Lazarus and Folkman (1984) between problem- and emotion-focused strategies, alternative taxonomies need to be considered because in considering alternative approaches we are confronted not just by issues of reliability and validity (O’Driscoll and Cooper, 1994) but also by the equally substantive issues of context specificity and replication (Trenberth, Dewe and Walkey, 1996).

The utility of these distinctions and the variety of approaches taken when describing coping strategies are outlined below. The classification of coping strategies has been achieved in a number of different ways. At the theoretical level this involves developing categories that are: (a) broadly reflective of the coping literature, (b) guided by a literature review or (c) based around a particular theory. The empirical approach typically works from open-ended questions or existing frameworks and then uses content or factor analysis to derive a solution that can be applied back to understanding, validating or confirming a particular schema.
