Abstract

A small group of children with sickle cell disease and their non-affected siblings served as participants in a descriptive research project designed to describe how these children problem-solve and cope with social and academic stress at school. Data collection involved pictorial stimuli to evoke story telling. The study's results indicate that both problem-solving and coping methods were identical between affected and non-affected children in the sample: both groups utilized direct action in dealing with stressful situations. The study's generalizability is limited on account of small sample size.
