Abstract: Dysfunctional coping strategies can be expected to be among the criteria distinguishing personality disorders from normal personality functioning. In the present study the relationship between the basic coping modes problem-salving, social support seeking and avoidance was investigated in a sample of 137 psychiatric in-patients, using both a dimensional and a categorical approach. The general pattern of association found was that of a lack of social support seeking, together with an excess of avoidant coping. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. AII rights reserved.
