ABSTRACT

An attempt was made in the present investigation to study the role of anxiety, depression and personality on appraisal- focused coping style on a sample of 400 adolescent girls selected randomly in the age group of 14-17 years, studying in secondary schools of chittoor district of A.P. Data were collected by using Anxiety scale (Sinha, 1989), Depression Scale (Karim and Rama Tiwari, 1986), Personality Inventory (Williams, 1998) and Coping Styles scale (Kumar and Sreenivas, 1998). A 2x2x2 factorial design was employed. ANOVA was used to analyze the data. The findings of the study revealed that anxiety, depression and personality have significant influence on appraisal- focused coping style among adolescent girls. Adolescent girls with type-A personality, low anxiety and mild depression have used appraisal- focused coping style more frequently than the girls with type B personality, high anxiety and moderate depression.
