Coping responses in depressed, socially maladjusted, and suicidal adolescents.
To study the relation between specific coping-response preferences and three dimensions of psychological disturbance in adolescents, 41 adolescents who had been admitted to an inpatient psychiatry program completed measures of depression, social maladjustment, suicidality, and coping responses to stressful life events. Analysis indicated that lower affective regulation was associated with increased depression, higher emotional discharge was associated with increased social maladjustment, and lower problem solving was associated with suicide attempts.
