The article presents the results of a study of proactive coping in its relationships with age, gender and education. The concept of proactive coping contains the aspect of time in the sense of involving steps that are to precede the situations to be coped with. In the sample of 172 subjects, the differences were studied between groups defined by the above factors. The results show age-related differences in proactive coping where older people compared with younger ones prefer proactive coping more often, and women compared with men seek instrumental support coping strategy more often. Comparison of groups of adults who study and who do not study does not show significant differences among strategies of coping used.
