SALGADO, Diana; ROCHA, Nuno  e  MARQUES, António. The impact of proactive coping skills, emotional distress and self-esteem on functioning and quality of life in schizophrenia. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.1, pp.143-154. ISSN 1645-0086.

The aim of this study was to examine the relative associations between proactive coping skills, emotional distress, selfesteem, functioning and quality of life among persons diagnosed with schizophrenia. Twenty three persons diagnosed with Schizophrenia were assessed with the following instruments: Quality of Life Scale from the World Health Organization, Life Skills Profile, Proactive Coping Inventory, Anxiety, Depression and Stress Scale, and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. Through correlative analysis we found that proactive coping, reflective coping, strategic planning and preventive coping correlated positively with different dimensions of functioning and quality of life. Avoidant coping wasn’t correlated with any functional outcome. We also didn’t found significant correlations between distress symptoms, functioning and quality of life, excepting depressive symptoms, which were correlated with communication skills and social relationships, and stress symptoms, which significantly correlated with the Psychological domain of quality of life. Self-esteem was positively associated with several domains of quality of life but not with objective dimensions of functioning.
