Abstract
Background: There are basically two ways of coping with stress and burdens in life. One is to withstand and accept demands and burdens by active coping, hardiness, endurance, and resistance. The other is to care for oneself, uphold wellbeing, and ensure regeneration. Both approaches correspond to problem focused and emotion focused strategies according to the transactional stress model (Lazarus & Folkman, 1984), and can be addressed in psychotherapy.
