Moreover, ways of coping are multi-dimensional and serve many different functions. They can be used to solve external problems or to deal with one’s own emotions (Lazarus and Folkman 1984); to change the environment or to accommodate to it (Brandtstädter and Renner 1990; Rudolph et al. 1995); and to engage in stressful interactions or to disengage from them (Connor-Smith et al. 2000). As highlighted by Pearlin and Schooler (1978), “Coping, in sum, is certainly not a unidimensional behavior. It functions at a number of levels and is attained by a plethora of behaviors, cognitions, and perceptions” (pp.

1991; Zimmer-Gembeck et al. 2009, 2011). Social partners can promote (or undermine) the development of coping resources, such as perceived control and working models of attachment figures. Over time, they can shape children and youth’s action tendencies, and they can participate directly in coping episodes through their own stress reactions and ways of coping. Importantly, social partners, 24 1 Coping as Action Regulation under Stress such as parents, grandparents, and friends, can help children and adolescents make sense of stressful events, helping them to reflect on and learn from coping attempts (whether successful or not), eventually even showing them how to plan proactive coping actions to prevent the reoccurrence of stressors.

2001; Eisenberg et al. 1997; Skinner 1999). For example, an extreme reaction to stress may block regulatory responses. Or, conversely, proactive coping can be used to prevent the occurrence of stressful situations and overly intense responses (Aspinwall and Taylor 1997). It is our view that “manifest coping responses reflect the balance (or more precisely, the imbalance) between reactions and regulation, with involuntary stress responses the result of extreme stress reactions combined with weak or disabled regulatory systems; and volitional coping responses the result of weak stress reactions and/or well-developed action regulation systems (Metcalfe and Mischel 1999)” (Skinner and Zimmer-Gembeck 2009, pp.
