The Praeger Handbook on Stress and Coping
Edited by Alan Monat, Richard S. Lazarus, and Gretchen Reevy.
Includes a chapter by former college at Brockport faculty member, David F. Duncan: Growing up under the gun : children and adolescents coping with violent neighborhoods.
One of the most famed figures in the psychology field worldwide, the late Richard Lazarus worked with coeditors Alan Monat and Gretchen Reevy to fashion this anthology focused on one area of psychology nearly every person can relate to—stress. A team of researchers presents current and classic findings on the mental and physical effects of stress, as well as the means to manage and cope with everyday stress as well as extreme stress. Included are chapters by Lance Armstrong on coping with cancer and a chapter by Dean Ornish explaining how stress—self-imposed or not—affects the heart. Today factors ranging from war, terrorism, and disaster to discrimination, divorce, and daily job struggles make all of us painfully aware of stress. This set gives readers across backgrounds a solid introduction to classic and contemporary thought in a field so relevant to successful living. These volumes will also be of interest to researchers, students, and scholars in psychology, health science, psychiatry, nursing, and physical education.
