Direct ways to cope up with stress
Direct ways to cope up with stress are called problem focused coping techniques. The person focuses efforts on the problem using direct ways of resolving the problem. It involves attack, withdrawal, or compromise, for e.g., Soni has come to know that her friend Ronita is talking ill about her to others. She may verbally confront Ronita and get into an argument (attack) or she may stop talking to/interacting with Ronita (withdrawal) or she may check with some honest friends if Ronita is really bad-mouthing her and if yes, then why? Then, she in the presence of friends try to sort out the matter (compromise).
