Alessandra Cavicchio, Tommasina Russo, Roberta Ciuffini, Carmine Marini


Multiple sclerosis typically induces strong stress-related disorders and intense emotional reactions. Therefore, in the emotional management of multiple sclerosis it is of crucial relevance to better understand and discuss the role of personologic parameters, subjective reactive modalities, and coping, emotional, relational and impulsiveness control capabilities. This study claims how enhancing these protective mechanisms and specifically the coping, it is possible to minimize the modalities and intensity of disfunctional emotive reactions and consequently obtain a quality of life improvement.
