Objectives: The purpose of this research was to determine the relationship between coping styles and emotional intelligence in guidance school students in the city of Tehran.

Method: 420 students (195 boys and 225 girls) who were selected randomly using multi-stage cluster sampling from three areas in Tehran (areas one, six and 16) from all grades of guidance school, completed the Adolescent Coping Scale and Schutte Self-report Inventory. Data were analyzed using correlation coefficient and regression analysis.

Results: There was a positive relationship between emotional quotient and each of the three coping styles (efficient, non-efficient, and refer-to-others) (p<0.001). In addition, emotional intelligence could significantly predict each of these three coping styles (p<0.001).

Conclusion: The results of the present study approve the theories that aim to conceptualize emotional intelligence and coping in an integrated unit. These results are also useful for specialists who are pursuing patterns based on the prevention and treatment of behavioral and psychiatric disorders.
