Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how professional workers cope with work stress in a highly competitive economy Singapore. It focuses on the availability and use of coping among six groups of professional workers, namely medical doctors, lawyers, engineers, lawyers, life insurance agents, nurses and teachers. The chapter examines coping resources and responses among professional workers in Singapore. Specifically, it also focuses on the institutional arrangements of six chosen professions and their effects on the use and efficacy of coping resources and strategies. Coping resources, reflecting a potential for actions, refer to the social and personal characteristics that individuals draw upon to deal with threats posed by events and objects in their environment. To examine the relationship between coping resources and response, correlational analyses were performed with statistical control of demographic variables.
