Competence in coping with diffi cult situations in adolescents with HPV
Infections with HBV are widespread in most countries. There has been minimal focus on coping with chronic HBV infection in adolescents, however symptoms of the disease, troublesome treatment and risk of future complications put the patients in diffi cult position. In this report we examine whether optimism is involved in mediating methods of coping with diffi cult situations connected with HBV infection affecting adolescents. There were no differences between the level of optimism and level of happiness in the studied group of young people with the chronic disease and the healthy group were noticed. Optimism changes the way of coping with HPV. The occurrence of HBV in young people does not disturb their choices of the methods of coping with life diffi culties. Optimism is a moderator in the course of action taken in diffi cult situations, including a disease.
