First-Year Students' Adaptation to College: The Role of Family Variables and Individual Coping.

Abstract

First semester college students (N=139) were surveyed to assess the role of family structure, family conflict, family coping, and individual coping on adjustment to college. Family conflict and family coping were related to adaptation to college. Individual coping also significantly correlated with adaptation to college. Results support a mediational model linking family coping, individual coping, and adaptation to college.
