Conceptual Framework Figure 1 This study which mainly aims to identify the coping mechanisms employed by students is mainly grounded on three theories. The above figure show theories on how the development of a person is influenced by different factors based on theoretical foundations, specifically in this study are those of the Social Cognitive and Birth Order Theories. The Social Cognitive Theory of Bandura tell us that a person’s gender development is not just only influenced by biological, behavioral or environmental factors alone but through the interplay of the three. Adler’s theory on the other hand is also a personality theory that explains the relation of a person’s birth order to his Alfred Adler’s Birth Order Theory Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory COPING MECHANISM Lazarus and Folkman’s TRANSACTIONAL MODEL OF STRESS AND COPING

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
