    The positive psychology movement offers a new dimension to coping research. It is possible to identify a number of trends in coping research that have, one way or another, suggested a route through which the positive can be emphasized, offering what must be a better understanding of the nature of coping. These trends include focusing more on both positive and negative emotions so as to capture what best expresses the work experience; a greater emphasis on the appraisal process and the role of positive meanings, emphasizing the importance of positive emotions and the role they play as a coping resource; and developing a better understanding of proactive coping and what is meant by coping effectiveness.
