Abstract

The study examines gender differences in the buffering effects of two coping resources, potency and marital quality, on a random sample of 103 married women and 96 married men who live under the threat of relocation in the Golan Heights region, Israel. Findings indicate that potency (profound faith in one's own ability, and true belief in order and meaning in society) had a buffering effect on perceived demands and stress in both men and women, while marital quality had a buffering effect on perceived demands in women only. Also, perceived demands were found to aggravate stress in women.
