HERNANDEZ MONTANO, Alicia et al. Anxiety, hopelessness, and coping with COVID-19 in users of psychological care. Act.Psi [online]. 2022, vol.36, n.132, pp.17-28. ISSN 2215-3535.

Objective. The main goal was to identify the levels of symptoms of anxiety and hopelessness, as well as the coping strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic in users of online psychological care services. Method. A predictive cross-sectional design was used, with a sample of 78 volunteers. The scale of coping strategies in the face of extreme risks, the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and the Beck Hopelessness Scale (BHS) were applied. Results. The results indicated that since there is an elevated level of anxiety in the participants, they tend to manifest a higher level of helplessness and coping behaviors oriented towards avoidance and passive nature.

Keywords : Anxiety; helplessness; coping; psychological intervention; COVID-19.
