Hypothesis testing

Consider what you’ve been learning about in this course: If someone is well-skilled and practices positive psychology and problem-focused, emotion-focused, and

appraisal-focused coping, in what ways might these skills help him or her deal with having a psychological disorder? How might it even prevent him or her from

suffering from a psychological disorder? On the other hand, how might having poor coping skills and/or failing to practice them be associated with or contribute to

having or even worsening a psychological disorder? What differences might there be between children and adults on these issues?
