Description:

The paper looks at how a wide range of coping theories is available, however, all of the literature offers some variation of emotion- or rational-based theory as developed by Lazarus and Folkman. The paper discusses how their theory has been used successfully with cancer patients, patients undergoing rehabilitation, and people suffering with rheumatoid arthritis, and other chronic conditions (Sinclair & Scroggie, 2005). The paper notes that all theories are based in appraisal of the stressful situation as well as resources at hand. The paper emphasizes that no theoretical framework can be implemented into nursing practice unless it is in some way grounded in Lazarus and Folkman's model of stress and coping.
