1. Abu-Fannouneh,A. Coping Strategies of Palestinian Men and Women Who are residing in a Refugee Camp Compared to Those Residing in a Village in the West Bank. Master’s Thesis, The Catholic University of America, 1990: 90pp.

This study was designed to describe and compare the coping strategies used by Palestinian men and women who are living under the extremely stressful situation that is “occupation”. These men and women are residing in refugee camps, villages, and cities in the West Bank. The ultimate goal of this study is to learn more about what coping strategies are most effective in buffering stress and thus improve the health of these people. The results of this study indicated that there were no overall significant differences in coping between the village and the camp in relation to age, gender, residence, marital status, number of children, and how many years in the situation.
