Following is a list of stressors. For each one, give a problem-focused and an emotion-focused strategy for dealing with the stressor. Remember the problem-focused either helps fix the problem or prevent it from recurring. The emotion-focused coping is designed to change your perspective on the problem. They are both important strategies to learn.
Example: Stressor: You get in an accident and wreck your car. Problem-focused strategy: You take photographs of the accident and call the insurance company daily to check on the status of your claim. Emotion-Focused Strategy: Whenever you start to feel discouraged about not having a car, you think to yourself how lucky you are that you did not get injured in the accident.
For each of the following stressors, come up with an emotion-focused and a problem-focused strategy. See the example above.
Stressor: You get in a fight with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
Stressor: You are late for work.
Stressor: You get a low score on an important exam.
Stressor: You have a “bad hair day.”
Now, come up with your own. List a stressor that you experience, and give a problem-focused and an emotion-focused strategy for dealing with it.
