An in-depth knowledge of the research findings on the significance of coping with various disasters greatly enhances the chances that a treatment approach will be designed for maximum effectiveness for the individual functioning within the disaster-affected community. Reflecting on the tribulations of critical illness and later sharing reflections with the patient were related to lower rates of posttraumatic stress in relatives, suggesting that the act of writing and sharing a diary could have a protective effect. Consequently, knowledge on the topic will become increasingly more valuable and indispensable. Handbook of stress: Theoretical and clinical aspects 2nd. 1 It can be seen as an "interaction between the person's internal resources and external environmental demands". KEY WORDS: disaster, theory, coping, September 11, mental health professionals, graduate students. Specific coping strategies may be connected with the quality of life and also with the severity of the disorder. The influence of Lazarus and Folkman's (1984) transactional theory of stress and coping is remarkable and remains the cornerstone of psychological stress and coping research across multiple fields. The framework emphasizes the importance of two processes, appraisal and coping, as mediators of the ongoing relationship between the person and the environment. Increased distress, however, is not indicative of psychopathology; therefore, caution is warranted when attributing mental distress exclusively to the effects of a disaster (Wilson & Rosenthal, 2004). If students are not able to manage examination stress accordingly, it may lead to serious psychological, physical, and mental problems.This study generally attempts to determine the causes of stress among a group of gifted pre-university students in Malaysia.The study also attempts to evaluate the most frequent coping strategies used by ASASIpintar students to manage exam stress and also to identify the predominant type of coping strategies used by ASASIpintar students to cope with exam stress. Problem-focused coping is also defined as channeling efforts to behaviorally handle distressing situations, gathering information, decision making, conflict resolution, resource acquisition (knowledge, skills, and abilities), and instrumental, situation-specific, or task-oriented actions (Folkman & Moskowitz, 2000). Most relatives expressed positive perceptions of diary usage; sharing the diary with the patient was related to fewer symptoms of posttraumatic stress. These findings can enlighten government agencies and policy makers on the importance of making prompt, effective decisions to address students' anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Appraisal theory examines the process by which emotions are elicited as a result of an individual's subjective interpretation or evaluation of important events or situations; hence, it is the evaluation of events to determine one's safety in relation to his or her place in the environment (Lazarus, 1999). Stress is an underlying reality to modern life. Consequently, mental health professionals continue to develop clinical programs (Marshall & Suh, 2003) and public health services (Felton, 2002; Klitzman & Freudenberg, 2003) to address the unique needs of particularly vulnerable populations. Alternatively, emotion-focused coping involves positive reappraisal. Delayed diary sharing did not have the same effect on patients but might enhance support between relatives and patients. The positive nature of coping, the constructive, adaptive, and functional aspects, will now be discussed. From the Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide, Department of Psychiatry, University of Rochester Medical Center (Matthieu) and the Columbia University School of Social Work (Ivanoff). The results indicated that about 35% of the students experienced moderate to extreme levels of anxiety. Psychological Science 15:482–487. We have also tried to summarize a far-flung literature and describe a way of understanding the process of growth that will encourage more attention from researchers. Helpful stress, or eustress, and destructive stress, or distress, are considered by Selye to increase in relation to one another in order to attain greater human performance or well-being (Everly & Lating, 2002). (c) Is there potential for a positive outcome following a disaster? (2006) Comparing stress responses to terrorism in residents of two communities over time. Higher levels of anger, This research is a follow-up to a previous study on the preferred stress coping strategies of students that ascertained rather unsettling result of surprisingly high number of negative strategies. After the acute event has been appraised by the individual, meaning and emotions are generated. A national event of terrorism and disaster not only affects the obvious survivors who experienced personal injury, resource loss, or death of a loved one but also has an impact on others in the community in their perception or psychological evaluation of the event's crisis magnitude (Rubonis & Bickman, 1991). Today, we witness an increase in the prevalence of chronic kidney disease, which is a very stressful process. In assessing the best approach to treating a client, it is also beneficial to understand the types of stressors and how it is defined within the transactional framework. Regardless, religion was found to be the most frequently used coping strategy by ASASIpintar students (84%). (2002) 60,000 disaster victims speak: Part II. (The Free Press, New York) pp. Using this as an assessment framework provides clinicians with the needed information with which to apply appropriate crisis interventions or provide brief supportive therapeutic encounters to potential at-risk groups or individuals who are already presenting with acute distress symptoms specifically in the aftermath of a disaster. Different age groups experience different levels of stress due to different causes. Future research is expected to address the validity and appropriateness of these strategies and encourage other approaches. Reappraisals or reinterpretations are appraisals with the resolution of an event as successful (Lazarus & Folkman, 1984), and positive effects are denoted as a positive outcome after a particularly difficult encounter (Aldwin, 1994). The focus of this study was on the anxiety level of university students during the COVID-19 pandemic in Saudi Arabia. [CrossRef][ISI][Medline], Pfefferbaum B, Pfefferbaum RL, Christiansen EH, Schorr JK, Vincent RD, Nixon SJ, et al. While for the most part emergency workers are equipped to deal with these events, on occasion one particular event will have a lasting impact. (2002) Project Liberty: A public health response to New Yorkers' mental health needs arising from the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. with depressive disorder. Yet, clinical professionals may also benefit if they were to take into consideration the larger public health impact of disasters as well as attending to the clinical presentation of the individual experiencing a disaster in his or her local environment. Oklahoma City residents reported significantly more posttraumatic and general stress compared to Indianapolis residents in the months following the bombing, but differences decreased over time. Living in temporary accommodation (TA) can impact negatively on social and emotional well-being, particularly where it is poor-quality, large-scale, or congregate in nature. While it is likely that many older people will identify a variety of challenges, it is also likely that some older people will not experience challenges. The most frequently appraised challenges were constraints on social interactions (42.4%) and restrictions on activity (30.9%). Psychological Stress: The Lazarus Theory Two concepts are central to any psychological stress theory: appraisal, i.e., individuals' evaluation of the significance of what is happening for their well-being, and coping, i.e., individuals' efforts in thought and action to manage specific demands (cf. As one example, following the WTC disaster in NYC, the study of 286 MSW students, who were just beginning their agency-based field placement when the attack occurred, reported that the students immediately became aware of the urgent need to attend to personal safety, that of self and others, with particular attention placed on the clients their field placement served (Matthieu et al., 2006). It is also critical for mental health providers to acknowledge that there are competing demands, personal and professional, that are related to their ability to provide clinical services during a disaster in their own local community. According to Lewis and Roberts (2001), crisis assessment by behavioral health practitioners should focus on the individual-level crisis factors: the stimulus of the crisis, the individuals' perception of the stressor, their coping efficacy, as well as an assessment of the individuals' appraisal of psychosocial variables, general resource availability, and cultural norms (Lewis & Roberts, 2001). A review of adversarial growth (Linley & Joseph, 2004) revealed that a number of cognitive appraisal variables, as well as other coping variables (e.g., positive affect, problem focused coping), were consistently associated with adversarial growth. A particular encounter or event can be described as acute, whereas an ongoing demanding condition can be described as chronic. (2001) A Crisis State Assessment Scale: Development and validation of a new instrument. Essentially, our appraisal of a situation causes an emotional, or affective, response that is going to be based on that appraisal. This paper also discusses the role that theory can play in facilitating clinicians' assessment of the coping strategies their clients use to decrease distress in the aftermath of a disaster. We do know that developmentally, disasters affect people differently at various ages and stages (Weisaeth, 1993). (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved). They report that this can occur in instances where stress occurs in the body when it reacts to substances such as caffeine or environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures. Data [Abstract/Free Full Text]. Taken together, the importance of their interpretation of the psychosocial stressor's magnitude, the emotions that are generated, and the resulting stress response is called the cognitive primacy perspective (Everly & Lating, 2002; Lazarus, 1999). The objective of this study was to explore the relationship between the coping strategies and quality of life in outpatients. (2003) Children's mental health after disasters: The impact of the World Trade Center attack. Contact author: Monica M. Matthieu, Senior Instructor and National Research Service Award Fellow, Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide, Department of Psychiatry, University of Rochester Medical Center, 300 Crittenden Boulevard, Box PSYCH, Rochester, NY 14642. Lastly, an individual employs coping strategies in one of two ways, by problem-focused coping, which is actively or behaviorally altering the external person–environment relationship, or emotion-focused coping, which is altering the personal or internal meaning or relationships (Lazarus, 1999). [CrossRef][Medline], Galea S, Ahern J, Resnick H, Kilpatrick D, Bucuvalas M, Gold J, et al. Chronic stress is defined as an ongoing threatening condition, event, or role that impacts an individual and his or her life continuously (Lazarus, 1999; Pearlin, Menaghan, Lieberman, & Mullan, 1981). Data on sociodemographic and clinical variables were recorded. For some mental health professionals, the events may have created pressing and sometimes disturbing clinical questions. New England Journal of Medicine 346:982–987. As such, the transactional framework focuses on cognitions and perceptions, or appraisals, that mediate the response to stressful events (Lazarus, 1999). Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention 6:144–153. expression were associated with higher levels of stress as well as lower use of active coping. The result of this stress process in the mind and body may be the occurrence of eventual disease states (Everly & Lating, 2002). The use of theory in program planning and organizing by assessing the community-felt needs can also guide decision making on the appropriate level and type of services provided to the communities affected by a disaster. (2000) Positive affect and the other side of coping. Results Coping and Positive Outcomes Therefore, professionals that work with traumatized populations or those suffering acute stress reactions from psychosocial stressors such as disasters may want to consider incorporating an awareness of the perceived benefits that can result from extreme distress (Tedeschi & Calhoun, 1995). Questionnaires were distributed randomly to gifted students of Malaysian Pre-university program at the Pusat PERMATApintar™ Negara (National Gifted Centre) at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (the National University of Malaysia). Because secondary appraisal is purely a cognitive process, coping efforts have not been instituted at this point. Understanding how people assess events and react to these events is one key to helping them move through taxing situations resourcefully. Culture and Diverse Ethnic Minority Psychology 9:251–262. Lastly, challenge is marked by positive events that have a risk of future negative outcomes that are laced with mastery (of event) and risk (from the challenge) (Lazarus & Folkman, 1984). (Kluwer Academic, New York). How do we as mental health professionals, best serve the affected populations following the next disaster event or crisis situation? Postdisaster, the coping strategies, skills, and repertoires used to decrease distress assist in clinical assessment and intervention as well as in the design of prevention and crisis intervention services for the community. Lazarus RS and Folkman S. (1984) Stress, appraisal, and coping(Springer, New York). Surveys after 9/11 showed unequivocally that symptomatology related to the attacks were found in hundreds of thousands of people, most of whom were not escapees or the families of the deceased. Knowledge of the macro- as well as microlevel issues is a necessary foundation to building the repertoire of skills clinical professionals engaging in disaster mental health service delivery need.

Effectively handling events perceived as stressful may become one of the greatest tools in maintaining highly functioning lives. In order to better serve all demographic groups, more specific knowledge about coping with the psychological impact of stressful events is necessary. This type of coping allows the individual to focus attention on situation-specific goals and allows for a sense of mastery and control in working toward attaining that specific goal. As this theory outlines the ways in which individuals assess events or situations as psychologically stressful, it enables clinicians to develop therapeutic approaches and perhaps even design programs that take a client's thought processes and emotional responses into account. According to Lazarus and Folkman (1984), there are also three types of primary appraisal: (a) irrelevant, where the individual has no vested interest in the transaction or results; (b) benign positive, in which the individual assumes that the situation is positive with no potential negative results to his or her well-being; and (c) stressful, where the individual only perceives negative results or that the circumstances are detrimental to his or her well-being.

Folkman, 1984), a framework that inte grates stress, appr aisal, and copi ng theories as they relate to how individuals react to psychologically stressful situations and/or environments. Stress has become a common denominator in our fast-paced, complex society. The QSD-R consists of 45 items and eight subscales: leisure time, depression/fear of future, hypoglycemia, treatment regimen/diet, physical complaints, work, partner, and doctor-patient relationship. American Psychologist 59:20–28. The sequelea in terms of traumatic stress symptoms and depressive symptoms has the potential to be highly disruptive and long-standing for both the individual worker and their families, and the organizations in which they work. The initial contact with community members affected by a disaster requires interviewing, assessment, and problem-solving skills that are grounded in stress, appraisal, and coping theories. According to Miller, monitoring and blunting is a construct that is based on the repression-sensitization theory due to the similarity in their nature as cognitive informational styles. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved), [argues] that because stress involves negative emotions, it is part of a larger conceptual whole that includes both positive and negative emotions / explores the contrasts between stress and the emotions and offers a brief account of a cognitive-motivational-relational theory of the emotions that can enrich our ability to understand and predict the individual emotions and facilitate the concerns of clinical practitioners about the role of emotions in psychopathology and treatment (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved), book is a unique resource because it includes chapters with empirical data on risk factors for combat stress reactions, physical performance under extreme conditions, and the impact of war and terrorism on family members of combatants. Developed in 1984, Lazarus stress is defined as … Correlation coefficient was computed for self-efficacy, well-being, positive coping strategies and negative coping strategies. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry 36:198–204. Using of positive coping is in average level (the strategy Positive self-instruction is little used). From March to May 2020, a questionnaire was administered and completed by 400 students. Rubonis AV and Bickman L. (1991) Psychological impairment in the wake of disaster: The disaster-psychopathology relationship. Positive affect, as contrasted by negative affect, is defined as the ability to find the positive side of coping (Folkman & Moskowitz, 2000). [ISI][Medline], Folkman S and Moskowitz JT. Summary and implications of the disaster mental health research. All rights reserved. The resulting appraisal then generates an emotion, or meaning, attributed to the particular event or situation. In fact, we need some challenges that will be accompanied by stressors to keep us motivated and push us to try harder.

We hope that we have presented information in a way that is accessible to clinicians, laypersons, and . In Goldberger L and Breznitz S (Eds.). This conceptual article describes transactional theory (R. S. Lazarus, 1999; R. S. Lazarus & S. Folkman, 1984), a framework that integrates stress, appraisal, and coping theories as they relate to how individuals react to psychologically stressful situations and/or environments. 1.2. In order to cope with the stress caused by this disease, the first step is to appraise the stressful situation correctly. The theory postulates that coping strategies used tend to match the level of appraised controllability of the stressor (matching hypothesis). Thus, a clinical understanding of the concept of stress and the effects of excessive psychophysiological arousal enables mental health practitioners to assess clients' presenting problems from the vantage point of mind–body interactions. Stress can be appraised as "healthy," especially when the stressor is perceived as a challenge, which can thereby influence individuals to be more flexible and adaptive in their response to stressors (Esch, 2002). However, in many situations, there is no need to elicit coping strategies to deal with a distressing event or situation. [ISI][Medline], Pearlin LI, Menaghan EG, Lieberman MA, Mullan JT.

Who will be most affected? Finally, examples of specific strategies that were used to decrease distress when coping with a disaster of national proportions will be used to illustrate the theoretical concepts presented herein. Additionally, these field instructors and students reported in a final study that flexibility and support from the academic institution, time devoted to on-campus disaster-related discussions, and active dissemination of community resources and evidence-based information were helpful in reducing disaster-related distress (Matthieu, Lewis, Ivanoff, & Conroy, 2006).
