Гендерные различия использования домашней среды как ресурса совладающего поведения в юношеском возрасте
In the following article we discuss gender differences in using the home environment as a resource of coping behavior in youth. The sample for our study consisted of 344 participants: 267 young women and 77 young men, mean age - 19.1, students of different faculties in HRU HSE. We used the “Functionality of the Home Environment Questionnaire”, the “Relevance of the Home Environment Questionnaire”, the “Home Attachment Questionnaire”, and the “Ways of Coping Questionnaire”.Our results show gender differences in the choice of the following coping strategies: distancing, seeking social support, escape-avoidance, and planning of problem solving. We have also revealed gender differences in the level of home attachment - young ladies are more home attached than young men. Gender differences in the level of functionality and relevance of the home environment have not been displayed. The study material can help to have a number of practical recommendations and can help to create the psychological training in using opportunities of the home environment for a personality's development and well-being.
