Late adulthood is a period in which a growing number of stressors such as strategies for coping with these situations may be significant for the subjective evaluation of the quality of life and adaptation to old age. The aim of this research is to present the relationship between, proactive coping and attitudes toward aging. 88 subjects aged 60-85 years (M = 69,5; SD = 6,74) participated in the study. The following methods were used: The Proactive Coping Inventory developed by Greenglass, Schwarzer and Taubert (Pasikowski’s adaptation) and The Sentence Completion Test – Attitude towards the Aging developed by Steuden. In these studies, people with high proactive achievement have a more positive attitude towards life and old age than those with less proactive one.
Key words: old age, proactive coping, attitudes toward aging
