Coping Research

Updated: Dec 17, 2020

A non-profit organization aimed at educating youth and adults on healthy coping skills and strategies to enable better response and resilience in the face of hard emotions and circumstances.

At Cope2Hope, the fundamental purpose of our educational model is to provide a variety of coping skills that will give children and adults more options when faced with different types of situations to manage their emotions. The program will focus on helping kids acquire a variety of necessary healthy coping skills to increase self-esteem and decrease behavior issues in the classroom.






What the Research Shows


In a longitudinal study published in the PubMed Central (PMC) archive at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM), an alternative method to understanding coping and adjustment was investigated. “Researchers…have suggested that coping flexibility (i.e., an individual’s ability to modify and change coping strategies depending on the context) may be an important way to investigate coping. The availability of numerous coping strategies may be an important precursor to coping flexibility, given that flexibility can only be obtained if an individual is able to access and use different coping strategies.” The study was focused on college students and they found that “using a greater number of positive coping strategies is associated with less use of negative coping strategies, less suicide ideation, as well as higher self-esteem, emotion regulation, and academic achievement over time. Further, decreasing the ways in which individuals use negative coping strategies…can help to decrease depressive symptoms as well as increase emotion regulation over time.”
