Abstract/Summary

The study revolved around the problem of whether men’s coping styles from their strain masculinity affects their levels of life satisfaction. The study includes two mediation models: the discrepancy-strain mediation model and the dysfunction-strain mediation model, based on Pleck’s (1995) gender role strain paradigm. The researchers investigated 200 male participants who were 21-39 years of age and have had current or past experiences with intimate partner violence (IPV). The researchers utilized the MRNI-SF, CMNI, CISS, and SWLS in order to gather data for the two mediation models. Using regression-based mediation analysis, all hypotheses were rejected (p<0.05). However, it was found that the discrepancy-strain mediation model was statistically significant, coping style still played a more significant role as a predictor rather than a mediator (4.86%). The researchers concluded that various methodological limitations may have contributed to the rejection of the hypotheses, that measuring life satisfaction can be further explained by discrepancy-strain and coping style, but not mediated, and the use of other variables may produce stronger mediation effects. All the evidence found in this model led to the conclusion that men under high notions of masculine roles than their actual masculinity may attain higher levels of life satisfaction if they utilized emotion-focused coping styles.
