stressors in such categories as job
characteristics, work schedule, and work
productivity.

64
Your Coping Resources
The Your Coping Resources page of the report
describes the four coping resources measured by
the report.
It includes a snapshot of the respondents
strengths or challenges in the four coping
resources for both personal and work life.
The graph indicates which resources are readily
available to the respondent.
…and which could be developed further.
65
Personal Coping Resources
Each Coping Resource includes a narrative
analysis of the respondents ability to use this
coping resource in his or her personal life.
It restates the items the respondent indicated
had a positive impact on his or her ability to
use this coping resource.
The feedback also includes items that the
respondent could develop further to enhance his
or her ability to use this coping resource.

Each Coping Resource includes actionable ways for
the respondent to develop that coping resource.
There is also space in the report for the
respondent to record which techniques he or she
would like to use.
67
Personal Work Action Plan
The Coping Stress Profile includes
action-planning pages for both personal and work
life. The pages help the respondent to identify
which stressors are most prominent in his or her
personal and work life.
This allows the respondent to prioritize the
daily hassles that need their attention and
pinpoint the stressors that they can learn to
live with.
