Abstract

The purpose of this project was to determine the role of coping style in women's practice of breast and gynecological screening behaviors. Women were classified into one of four coping groups based on measures of vigilance and screening distress. Data were analyzed from a subset of 85 U.S. women who participated in a larger longitudinal study designed to examine self-reported screening participation. Results indicate frequency of screening participation and importance of obtaining immediate mammography feedback differed across coping style groups. Women characterized as high in vigilance and screening distress were most at risk for nonparticipation in screening.
