The following review investigates stress and coping in adolescents.
Some of the main stressors for adolescents are reviewed, and research
into coping behaviour is examined. The effects of individual
differences in stress and coping are also explored. There are many
issues related to adolescent stress and coping that warrant further
investigation. This review examines the different types of stress and
the main stressors encountered by adolescents. Coping behaviour is
explored, including the consistency of coping behaviour across
situations. An appropriate assessment measure of adolescent coping
(ACS) is recommended. The main coping strategies employed by
adolescents are reviewed, and differences such as gender, age and
ability, as well as school differences (private/state) in stress and
coping behaviour are investigated. Social support, help seeking
behaviour and coping are examined. It is concluded that further work
is required in relation to the consistency of coping strategies across
different situations perceived as stressful and non-stressful by
