In the study, the use of coping and emotion regulation (ER)
strategies is compared in 194 adults aged between 20 and
65 years, regarding their age (emerging, young or middle
adulthood), gender and level of education. There are almost
no significant differences in the use of coping and ER
strategies in adults regarding age. Women use certain ER
strategies (e.g., attentional deployment) more than men, but
there is no difference between the two groups in the use of
coping strategies. Adults with a low level of education use
more confrontive coping and distracting in comparison with
adults with a high level of education, while the escape-
-avoiding coping strategy is used more by adults with low
and middle levels of education than those with a high level
of education. Regarding ER, adults with a low level of
education use more cognitive reappraisal of importance than
both groups with a higher educational level, whereas they
use suppression and substances only more than adults with a
high level of education. Correlations between coping and ER
strategies are mostly non-significant, suggesting that coping
and ER are distinct processes in adulthood.
