Dispositional coping styles and adult literacy: Exploring stress and coping in adult vocational training environments
Ms Murray explored how adults of low literacy levels cope with stress in adult learning environments. Her results showed that adults with low literacy levels are more likely than high literacy individuals to use avoidance strategies while concurrently using less task-focused strategies and social support mechanisms. The research outlines suggestions for making formal learning environments safer and more effective for low literacy students.
