Finding out the effective coping is a requisite in management. Present paper tends to Identify the differences m passive-active as well as affective-cognitive coping techniques employed in tension type headache (TTH) and m migraine in Indian context. For this 30 patients with TTH and 30 patients with migraine diagnosed by consultant, psychiatrists were purposively selected from private and outpatient clinics of UP, India. They were assessed on pam coping inventory and significant differences were found among various coping styles adopted by each group. Findings also suggest a need for an individual module for strengthening active coping with an addition of cognitive therapy techniques to behavioral therapy.
