Stress can be seen in everyone’s life but not everyone reacts to stress in the same way. A friend who just lost his job that helped him cover tuition costs might feel very stressed out. He could have many different potential reactions to his job loss but if one were to apply Lazarus and Folkman’s cognitive theory then he would not be too devastated by this stressful event. With this situation, he would engage in primary appraisal, secondary appraisal and a stress response to tear down the stressful event and figure out what he will do.
Within the chapter, there is a breakdown of the different types of ineffective coping styles and how the therapist can use these coping styles to aid in treatment. The type of coping styles are based on Karen Horney’s theory of coping styles. Within this theory, there are 3 types of coping styles which include Moving Toward, Against and Away. The moving toward coping style can be defined as someone who copes by pleasing people and receiving approval which decreases the threat of rejection and criticism. In this coping style, the individual would try to accommodate individuals to avoid conflict and disagreement even if it means that they lose their voice or “sense of self”. Moving against coping style can be defined as taking control, being aggressive and being dominant in the relationships around them. As a result of their
It measures coping processes, not coping dispositions or styles. The WAYS is a stimulus for discussion in counselling. Areas for discussion may include identification of what was at stake in the stressful encounter as well as identification of the possible options for coping and the strategies that were actually used. The WAYS was used to help Karly develop practical, healthy coping skills by evaluating her processes, strengths and weaknesses. The WAYS provides models of positive coping processes and will allow Karly to use those alternatives coping mechanisms in stressful situations.

To begin Part 2 on Eleanor Slagle’s study on resilience and human adaptability: I would like to start with the differences between meaningful and rewarding occupations. As mentioned in last week’s paper, occupation is not only related to one’s profession, but could all so means one’s calling or purpose in life. Some define such occupations by suggesting that they provide individuals with a sense of a meaningful existence. Others see them as constituting activities that a person perceives as important in his/her life. Meaningful occupations, among other things, provide people with a sense of control, identity, and a connection with others. However, as Ikiugu and Pollard argued, while meaningful occupations may provide one with a sense of purpose,
The current study sought to examine the relationship between the context in which a college student was raised and their level of felt anxiety, as well as the coping strategy adopted by these individuals. The researcher hypothesized that those college students who were raised in a rural context will have a greater level of felt anxiety and will utilize more maladaptive coping strategies. The Penn State Worry Questionnaire and the Brief COPE were used to collect data from a pool of 100 college students from a small, rural college. Two One-Way ANOVA analyses were utilized to examine the relationship between 1) context and felt anxiety and 2) context and coping strategies (adaptive and maladaptive). The researcher found that indeed there

This paper’s purpose is to examine and describe theories such as the psychoanalysis perspective, physiological perspective, and biological perspective of personality traits.
The final prong of the model is the “C” which stands for “Coping’ (p. 65). This is the solutions stage of the intervention. Many argue that it is the person being helped that has to formulate the solutions so that he or she will own them. Coping is important because
Coping is a process in which the body attempts to deal with internal and/external stressors. There are different ways in which our bodies attempt to cope with these stressors, coping is organized into two main groups, approach-oriented coping and avoidant coping. The difference between the two are the ways in
Resilience is the way towards adapting in the midst of misfortune, injury, catastrophe, dangers, or huge swathes of stress. It signifies rebound from troublesome encounters by honing the abilities required to give you a chance to travel through misfortune, as opposed to getting noticeably characterized by it. For better understanding Resilience is the procedure and result of effectively adjusting to troublesome or testing life encounters and the capacity to transcend one's conditions.
Over the years, many theories have been developed to study the human personality. Some of the notable theories are psychoanalytic theory, trait theory, humanistic theory and behavioural theory. In this assignment, we have chosen to compare and contrast the psychoanalytic and humanistic theories.
