Question and answer
Q: What is the difference between emotion-focused coping and problem-focused coping?
A: In coping with stress, people tend to use one of the three main coping strategies: either appraisal-focused, problem-focused, or emotion-focused coping. [ Emotion-focused strategies involve releasing pent-up emotions, distracting oneself, managing hostile feelings, meditating, using systematic relaxation procedures, etc. Problem-focused coping mechanisms may allow an individual greater
perceived control over their problem, while emotion-focused coping may more often lead to a reduction in perceived control. Certain individuals therefore feel that problem-focused mechanisms represent a more effective means of coping. Thanks for using Weegy! ]
