Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between two basic dimensionsof social-emotional adjustment: distress and self-restraint, as identified by Weinberger and Schwartz (l990), and the use of four coping strategies by spouse caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease. Caregivers were most frequently categorized as oversocialized (high distress, high self-restraint) and repressive (low distress, high self-restraint) according to Weinberger and Schwartz's (1990) social-emotional adjustment typology. A higher proportion of males than females were undersocialized (low distress, low self-restraint) and reactive (high distress, low self-restraint), whereas a higher proportion of females than males were oversocialized (high distress, high self-restraint). High distress caregivers were more likely to use the emotion-focused coping strategy of wishfulness, whereas low distress caregivers were more likely to use acceptance and the problem-focused strategy of instrumental coping. Although there were gender differences in distress and theuse of specific coping strategies, the relationships between distressand coping strategies us ed held regardless of gender. Implications for caregiver intervention programs as well as directions for future research are discussed.
