Abstract

Patterns of coping, defined as complex sets of coping strategies, were identified in a group of surgical patients awaiting surgery. The patterns werelabelled as asthenic, problem-oriented, active and avoidant. The four patterns consisted of different combinations of eight forms of coping, measuredby the Ways of Coping Questionnaire. The obtained results show that compared to the coping strategies analysed separately - those coping patterns were poorer predictors of the emotional outcome. Patients assigned to groups representing particular coping patterns showed different levels of anxiety measured at the beginning of hospitalization; however, no differences or changes in emotions were observed after a one-week lapse. More relationships were found between the coping strategies and measures of negative emotions (anxiety and anger) and their changes.
