Cardiovascular disorders CVD account for a vast proportion of mortality in developed countries. There are various risk factors identified for such condition, including Psychological stressors which play on important role in creating exaggeration or prolonging the above disorders. This study aims to assess the different copping response style to recent life events in patient with CVD and control group. Methods and Materials: Study populations are inpatient clinic of Ghaem hospital. They are 50 men with CVD and 50 men without CVD who were matched in marital status, education, job, number of children, state, history of psychiatric assessment, mean systolic blood pressure and mean cholesterol. We use Belongs and Moos test and paykel recent life event questionnaire. Results: Emotion oriented copying style was significantly higher in CVD group and the cognitive oriented reaction was significantly lower in this group. Social supports were higher in control than CVD patients, but this difference was nonsignificant. Also, Somatization was nonsignificantly more common in CVD group. No signifact difference was shown in vecent life events between two groups. Conclusion: It seems the change of copping methods and management of stressful events can help to decrease the risk of coronary artery diseaser
