Abstract: A study designed to investigate the phenomenon of active resistance, as a major method of coping in a human-imposed extreme situation, was conducted with 96 men who served prison sentences in a political prison in Communist Cuba. Responses of active resistance by the inmates to the stresses of the prison were measured by the Active Resistance Scale, an instrument created by the researcher. The relationship between eight independent or predictor variables and active resistance, the dependent measure, was analyzed. The relationship between the independent variables of age, education, intrapsychic coping strategies, action-oriented coping strategies, prisoner repression, sentence, family presence and family support and the dependent measure, active resistance, was investigated by means of several regression models. These regression models assessed the combined contribution of the identified predictor variables to ratings of active resistance. Post hoc analyses were conducted by means of a multivariate analysis of variance of unequal N's. This procedure included an analysis of significant F-ratios in order to identify specific group differences. The best predictor equation of active resistance was identified to include the following variables: family support, prisoner repression, sentence and action-oriented strategies. This equation did not take into consideration the other independent variables age, education, intrapsychic strategies and family presence — as these were not considered to contribute significantly to the prediction of active resistance beyond the contribution of the identified equation. Post hoc analyses were conducted to further investigate the relationship of the independent variables, prisoner repression and family support to the prisoners' expression of active resistance. These investigations demonstrated a significant difference in expressions of active resistance between inmates that received high levels of prisoner repression and those that received low and intermediate levels. Prisoner repression was measured by the Prisoner Repression Scale, an instrument created by the researcher. Post hoc analyses also demonstrated that inmates that received high levels of family support differed significantly in their expressions of active resistance from those that received low levels.
