dc.description The current study analyzed the association between family conflict, salivary cortisol levels, symptoms of anxiety and depression, and coping methods in young women. We hypothesize that young women with higher rates of conflict in their family background will demonstrate changes from normal levels of cortisol and total cortisol output after exposure to an acute stressor. One-hundred and sixteen female participants were recruited for this study. All were degree-seeking undergraduate students from Vanderbilt University. en_US
