Abstract/Description: My primary research aims to examine whether there are differences between soldiers in the United States Army and the civilian population (non-military) in how they define and cope with stress. In particular, my first research question is: Are there differences between members of the military and civilians in how they perceive stress? I will explore differences in their perceptions of stress in general and how they view stress in their own lives. Second, are there differences between the populations in the factors that they think cause stress? Third, are there differences in how civilians and military personnel respond to stress? Specifically, I am interested in identifying whether there are differences in the types and numbers of coping functions used by each population when they experience or perceive stress. Fourth, since coping strategies are partly determined by the availability of coping resources, I am interested in finding out whether there are differences in the availability of structural coping resources between the two populations. Fifth, I am examining if there appears to be a difference in stress exposures between the two populations.
