Crisis management: Positive versus negative recovery strategies

Abstract [en]

It is widely recognized that some individuals manage to adapt after a crisis more easily than others. The purpose, of this qualitative study is to identify coping strategies that have facilitated recovery and strategies that prolong the recovery process by describing and analyzing re-collective accounts of crisis. Eight individuals were interviewed concerning how they handled a personal crisis. Negative coping strategies which appeared were: concealing fears, passive non- productive activities, blaming others or oneself, suppressing emotions, and avoiding peer-support. Confronting a problem, fruitful leisure activities, seeking peer-support, and searching insights, emerged as positive strategies. Emotion-focused strategies appear also positive but have less impact compared to problem-focused responses.
