🥑「How to Measure the Ability of Coping with Stigma at the Individual Level ?」💐
Some groups of people may experience stigma during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stigma hurts individuals by increasing more fear or anger toward ordinary people instead of focusing on the disease that is causing the problem. Coping with stigma refers to a person’s ability to use strategies to cope with the stress of stigmatization, which can help maintain a positive self-concept and self-esteem.
