Study examined the effects of two coping methods, emotion-approach and emotion-avoidance, on the development and persistence of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms between 2 groups of burn survivors. In both groups, results indicated that subjects who used both mental distancing (emotion-avoidance) and venting (emotion-approach) had higher levels of symptoms than those who consistently used one method or the other. Implications of these findings are discussed.
