Individuals, however, seldom cope in isolation ? partners often play important roles in helping individuals? coping process. Answering the call for more research on dyadic and interpersonal aspects of coping , this dissertation examines how perceptions of having received dyadic coping from partners impact individuals? daily distress, well-being, and work engagement. Data were collected from 40 couples (N=80) over a period of two weeks.
