In a previous blog, we discussed different methods of coping. Some methods are not very effective (such as emotion- or avoidance-oriented coping methods). Some are more effective, and we call these task-oriented methods.
Task-oriented coping activities aim to solve a problem. If you can’t solve it, these aim to change the way that you think about it.
