COPING STRATEGIES ADOPTED BY UNIVERSITY STUDENTS - PART II: ROLE CONFLICT AND AGE
Keywords:Age, coping strategy, role conflict, stress, university education
This study examines the particularities of various stress coping strategies (measured by standardized stress coping strategies questionnaire SVF 78) used by undergraduate university students (N=177). The first part was focused on gender differences. Part II compares groups differing in age and level of family-school-work conflict, drawing on the division according to the type of study: Part-time (N=102) and Full-time (N=75) students as well as on the age distinction (age<23: N=95, age>24: N=82). The findings indicate that there are age differences, as well as differences between the groups of part-time and full-time students, in the use of stress coping strategies, especially regarding the use of the positive triad: situation control, reaction control and positive self-instruction.
