dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an examination of the roles of anticipatory coping and self-esteem in preparation for the end of an intimate relationship. First-year undergraduate students identified the anticipatory coping strategies they were using to prepare for the possible end of their long-distance intimate relationships. Anticipatory coping tended to be reported by low self-esteem (LSE) participants, 'r'(125) = -.33, 'p' < .01, and those who had little interest in their existing relationships, ' r'(125) = -.68, 'p' < .01. Anticipatory coping and self-esteem both predicted relationship dissolution (OR = 7.57; OR = 2.46), but anticipatory coping had no relationship with post-traumatic stress. Though not significant, LSE participants were more likely than HSE participants to appropriately self-regulate their use of anticipatory coping. The current research creates a profile of anticipatory coping users, and describes the role of anticipatory coping at the end of an intimate relationship.en_US
