This chapter describes a dual-process model of responses to stress as a framework for understanding stress, coping, and memory. The model includes both automatic and controlled responses to stress that involve engagement with or disengagement from sources of stress and one's emotions. Controlled responses to stress, which are equated with the concept of coping, are considered within the broader cognitive processes of executive functions and memory. Two examples from research on children and adults with cancer are used to show the diverse relations among these processes—the relations between controlled, working memory processes and coping, and the interplay between disengagement coping and intrusive, automatic memories. Finally, directions for future research on the role of memory in coping with stress are outlined.

Keywords:   stress response, children, dual-process model, engagement, disengagement, controlled response
