1. Brady, Lisa. The role of sense of coherence in stressor appraisal.

Degree: 2017, University of Tennessee – Chattanooga

According to the transactional theory of stress, cognitive individual differences impact stressor appraisal. Sense of Coherence (SoC) refers to an individual’s generalized perception of environmental stimuli. Individuals with a strong SoC perceive the world as more comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful and may be more likely to appraise work-related stressors as having potential for opportunities (challenges) than for obstructing personal gain (hindrances) or causing harm (threats). This study assessed the role of SoC in the appraisal of work-related stressors as challenges, hindrances, and threats. Although an individual’s SoC remains relatively stable upon reaching adulthood, there is a positive association between age and SoC across the lifespan. This study examined the moderating effect of age on the relationship between SoC and stressor appraisal. Two statistical techniques were applied, with one set of results supporting the hypothesis and the other set revealing significant relationships between stressor appraisal tendencies and the three SoC subdimensions. Advisors/Committee Members: Cunningham, Christopher J. L., O'Leary, Brian J., Ferrier, David E., College of Arts and Sciences.
