Sažetak

There are a limited number of studies that have addressed
coping strategies in patients with psoriasis, so the aim of this study was to
examine how patients with psoriasis cope with their illness. We included
122 participants in the study: 56 patients with psoriasis vulgaris and 66
healthy subjects. They filled out the Recent Life Changes Questionnaire
(RLCQ), blinded to their stress and clinical status, and the Brief COPE questionnaire
with 28 questions measuring 14 coping strategies that are either
adaptive or maladaptive. We statistically analyzed the self-reported
magnitude of each stressful event in the participants’ lives. Our results
show patients with psoriasis most commonly used active coping, seeking
emotional support, positive reframing, and acceptance, while their least
used strategies were denial and substance use. Since patients with psoriasis
often experience psychologically related problems/consequences, it is
necessary to take into account their psychological state and try to provide
appropriate help and support.
