What defensive coping methods is Michael using? What active coping methods might be healthier for Michael to use? Explain why you would recommend these methods.

When it comes to defensive coping method; Michael is living in denial because he has not developed a solid plan to resolve his problems in the event that he got laid-off from his job.

There are many active coping methods to reduce or cope with the effects of stress. Therefore, they all require change. Michael has two possibilities: he can change his situation or change his reaction. As soon as he knows what route to take he will be very helpful for Michael to think of the four As: Avoid, alter, accept or adapt.
Also, another active coping methods that might be healthier for Michael to use will be accessing or building a social support network system that will help him benefit from reduced stress by having people who can listen and sympathize with him. It is imperative that Michael regains his locus of control. As a result, he will be able to control the direction of his life and plans in a very healthy manner.

I will recommend these methods because everyone has a unique way to respond to stress. Therefore, everyone solution is different to manage. The same method that works for Michael may not work for everyone or every situation. In essence, it is very important to focus on what makes you feel in control and relax.
