Introduction: Divorce is considered as one of the most harmful phenomena in society, which can cause many psychological and behavioral problems. Hence, the way to manage such problems, deal with them, and tolerate them plays an important role in the mental health of divorced people. The current study aimed at comparing the coping strategies and resiliency between divorced and non-divorced females in Karaj, Iran.
Methods: The current descriptive-comparative study was conducted on all divorced and non-divorced females in Karaj as the statistical population of the study of which 100 divorced and 100 non-divorced subjects were selected by the convenience sampling method based on the inclusion criteria. The data were collected by Billings and Moos coping strategies questionnaire and Connor-Davidson resilience scale (CD-RISC). Validity and reliability of the instruments were confirmed in previous studies. Data were analyzed with SPSS version 22.
Results: There was a significant difference in problem-oriented coping strategies, excitement, and resiliency between the two groups of divorced and non-divorced females (P < 0.05). In addition, non-divorced females in resiliency variables and problematic coping strategies, and divorced females in excitement coping strategies got higher scores (P < 0.05).
Conclusions: Divorced females show less resilience and higher excitement coping strategies. Therefore, implementation of an intervention program is suggested to reduce psychological problems, increase resilience, and improve coping strategies in divorced females.
