ABSTRACT

This study aimed to investigate the mediating role of coping strategy on the relationship between time perspective and post-traumatic growth. Data of 347 college students were analyzed by measuring their time perspective, post-traumatic growth and coping strategy. The results indicated that social support seeking coping totally mediated the relationship between past positive time perspective and post-traumatic growth. Whereas, problem focused coping partially mediated the relationship between future time perspective and post-traumatic growth. However, coping strategy did not mediate the relationship between hedonistic time perspective and post-traumatic growth. These results suggest a time perspective and coping strategy that should be given focus in interventions designed to promote post-traumatic growth. These findings likewise emphasized the need for an appropriate coping strategy according to the time perspective of the target individual.
