SANJUAN, Pilar  e  MAGALLARES, Alejandro. Coping strategies as mediator variables between explanatory styles and depressive symptoms. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.2, pp.447-451. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.31.2.173391.

The main goal of this study was to analyze the relationships among explanatory styles, coping strategies and depressive symptoms. Path analyses conducted with data of 234 individuals showed that Negative Explanatory Style (tendency to explain negative outcomes through internal, stable, and global causes) had both a positive direct effect on depressive symptoms, and an indirect effect on them through the use of avoidant strategies. On the contrary, Enhancing Explanatory Style (tendency to explain positive outcomes through internal, stable, and global causes) had negative direct and indirect effects on these symptoms, but in this case, the indirect effect occurs through the use of problem solving and positive cognitive restructuring coping and the non-use of avoidant strategies. As a whole, the results suggest that to prevent the onset of depressive symptoms or to reduce them once they appear, enhancing explanatory style and problem solving and positive cognitive restructuring strategies should be promoted.

Palavras-chave : Negative explanatory style; enhancing explanatory style; depressive symptoms; problem solving coping; positive cognitive restructuring coping; avoidant coping.
