Increasing attention has recently been given to the social aspects of consumer behavior. However, most studies have viewed consumers as subjects to group influence, and have not addressed the dynamic processes involved, including the coping strategies consumer use in stressful situations. The present research addresses this gap by formulating a model of individual coping with attitude change in response to social influence. Two studies provide evidence in support of the proposed model. This research contributes to extant literature related to cognitive evaluation, emotional appraisal, attitude change, social influence and specific coping responses.
