D'Rozario, V., & Goh, M. P. B. (1996, November). Adolescent coping styles in a sample of Singaporean students. Paper presented at the ERA-AARE Joint Conference, Singapore.
This paper presents data on the ways Singaporean adolescents choose to
cope with problems. A sample of 467 secondary school students
completed the Adolescent Coping Scale (ACS: Frydenberg & Lewis, 1993)
which yields data on eighteen potential coping scales, namely, (1)
Seek Social Support, (2) Focus on Solving the Problem, (3) Work
Hard and Achieve, (4) Worry, (5) Invest in Close Friends, (6)
Seek to Belong, (7) Wishful Thinking, (8) Not Coping, (9) Tension
Reduction, (10) Social Action, (11) Ignore the Problem, (12)
Self-Blame, (13) Keep to Self, (14) Seek Spiritual Support, (15)
Focus on the Positive, (16) Seek Professional Help, (17) Seek
Relaxing Diversions, and (18) Physical Recreation. The association
between coping style and gender, school and stream will be presented.
