Participants completed Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Cassidy & Long Problem Solving Styles and Billings and Moos Coping Responses Inventory (CRI). Data were analyzed using linear regression and variance analysis. The Results of study illustrated that that coping styles, non-constructive problem solving styles and depression have significant relation and depressed students used more emotional control and somatization (physical control) comparing to non-depressed students. On the other hand, non-depressed students used more Creative, Confidence and Approach Styles of problem solving styles.
