Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides a review of research on the role of processes of coping as a source of resilience to the adverse effects of stress in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Advances in research on models of coping that distinguish responses based on stressor controllability are emphasized. Important similarities between models of coping and emotion regulation are highlighted to encourage integration of research on these two topics. Findings from research on the association between coping and symptoms of psychopathology in adulthood, childhood, and adolescence are reviewed. Directions for future research, including the implications of research on coping for the development of preventive interventions and treatments, are highlighted.

Keywords: coping, emotion regulation, resilience, risk, stress, psychopathology, prevention
