Problem-Focused Coping

When confronted with acute or chronic stressors, the steps (see active coping) that are possible to take to alter the situation to alleviate the impact. In some cases, adjusting one’s schedule, eliminating unnecessary tasks, seeking alternative employment, detaching from troublesome relationships are necessary or possible. This differs from emotion-based coping in that it focuses on making actual permanent changes in life rather than finding constructive strategies (distractions, journaling, etc). as stress relievers.
