Individual and dyadic coping strategies in the aftermath of a traumatic experience


Kramer, Ueli; Ceschi, Grazia; Van der Linden, Martial; Bodenmann, Guy (2005). Individual and dyadic coping strategies in the aftermath of a traumatic experience. Swiss Journal of Psychology, 64(4):241-248.

Abstract

This study was designed to explore individual and dyadic coping strategies in the aftermath of a traumatic event. Eighteen persons having experienced a physical assault or a road accident within six to twelve months before the study, and eighteen matched control persons were recruited together with their partners. Each participant and his/her partner filled in several questionnaires on individual and dyadic coping strategies, level of stress and PTSD-symptomatology. Results indicate that participants having experienced a trauma, compared to controls, report a general lack of dyadic coping and, when facing daily hassles, specific decreases in individual coping strategies. These differences are discussed in the context of marital coping processes.
