The current study utilized a multi-wave longitudinal design and examined (a) whether coping strategies would mediate the relationship between impulsivity and anxiety, and (b) whether the association between impulsivity and coping would be moderated by a lack of perceived social support. Results of multi-level modeling indicated that the relationship between impulsivity and anxiety was significantly fully-mediated by the relative amount of maladaptive coping strategies by total. In contrast to our hypotheses, having a lack of perceived social support did not significantly moderate the relationship between coping and anxiety, but significantly predict the tendency to use maladaptive coping strategies as opposed to adaptive coping strategies.
