Role Of Coping In Health Among College Students
The coping strategies play a significant role in students health. This study examines the role of coping strategies in health in a sample of 219 Kashmiri college students (male = 52.10%, female = 47.90%; mean age = 23.30 years, SD = 1.70) who migrated to Bhopal, India for receiving higher education. Coping strategies were evaluated by means of the ways of coping (Folkman & Lazarus, 1985), while health was assessed using the general health questionnaire (Goldberg & Hillier, 1979). The results show a relationship between coping style and health. The findings of the study revealed that focus on the positive, detachment, wishful thinking and self-blame coping were found significant predictors of health for students. Implications of present findings for students health are discussed.
