Product description

From the Back Cover


The reissue of a classic work, now with a foreword by Daniel Goleman!

Here is a monumental work that continues in the tradition pioneered by co-author Richard Lazarus in his classic book "Psychological Stress and the Coping Process." Dr. Lazarus and his collaborator, Dr. Susan Folkman, present here a detailed theory of psychological stress, building on the concepts of cognitive appraisal and coping which have become major themes of theory and investigation.

As an integrative theoretical analysis, this volume pulls together two decades of research and thought on issues in behavioral medicine, emotion, stress management, treatment, and life span development. A selective review of the most pertinent literature is included in each chapter. The total reference listing for the book extends to 60 pages.

This work is necessarily multidisciplinary, reflecting the many dimensions of stress-related problems and their situation within a complex social context. While the emphasis is on psychological aspects of stress, the book is oriented towards professionals in various disciplines, as well as advanced students and educated laypersons. The intended audience ranges from psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, nurses, and social workers to sociologists, anthropologists, medical researchers, and physiologists. "

Format: Paperback
A classic that should be a 1st on your reading list if you are a student or a researcher. Having read the first 6 Chapters thus far it highlights differences in assessing and defining coping and stress appraisal. It has given me pleasure in reading but also many ideas for future research and what constitutes of good quality research in the coping field. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in coping.
