Example text

1993) found that among women dieters who had a lapse, restorative behavioral coping was elicited as a response to overeating, while restorative cognitive coping seemed to be elicited by the negative thoughts and feelings that sometimes accompany lapses or temptations. Dohm et al. (2001), also working with dieters, found that those who were able to reduce their weight and maintain it, in contrast to those who were unable to maintain their reduced weight, were more likely to use direct coping and less likely to seek help.

Similarly, Connors, Longabaugh, and Miller (1996), based on results from the RREP, found that the availability of coping skills was a potent protective factor, and that the use of ineffective coping was a consistent predictor of relapse. Different coping strategies may be more or less effective depending on the target of their application. Some strategies that may be appropriate and effective in dealing with generalized stress may be less effective in dealing with temptation and craving in specific high-risk situations.

One cannot measure the occurrence or magnitude of such intermediate variables in isolation; rather, they must be viewed in relation to the individual’s social and environmental supports, general sense of efficacy or perceived control, and the ability to anticipate, avoid, and/or cope with the resultant stress. At the point that the stress level exceeds the individual’s ability to cope, the perceived and anticipated positive benefits of the addictive behavior are likely to be more salient, and the risk of relapse may be potentiated into actual use.
