dc.description.abstractChronic illnesses, such as epilepsy, have been shown to have detrimental effects on both psychological adjustment and coping behaviour. Using the process model of coping, these effects were investigated in a patient group of 36, 16-21 year olds with epilepsy and a control group of 31 of their peers. Participants completed a postal questionnaire containing measures of psychological adjustment (self-esteem, affect, self-efficacy) and an adolescent coping questionnaire. Comparison of the two groups showed that the patient group exhibited significantly more non-productive coping than the control group. The control group exhibited significantly more problem solving coping and displayed significantly more problem solving bias than the patient group. No significant differences were found between the patient and control group on measures of psychological adjustment. However, psychological adjustment was found to be associated with coping response in the patient but not the control group.; Copyright 2002 BEA Trading Ltd.
