An attempt was made in the present investigation to study the impact of stress, emotional intelligence and mental health on emotional-focused coping styles in a sample of 400 aged men and women in the age group of 60-70 years, living in rural areas of A.P. Data were collected by using Daily Stress Inventory (Brantley and Jones,1989),Emotional Intelligence Scale (Nutan Kumar and Usha Ram ,1999), Mental Health Inventory (Jagadish and Srivastava,1983) 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 stress and emotional intelligence have significant influence on emotional- focused coping styles.
