Stress, Coping, and Development: An Integrative Perspective



This volume provides a much-needed integration of major issues and research in the field of stress and coping. Focusing on transactions between mind and body and between persons and environments, the book examines how physiological, psychological, social, and cultural factors come together to influence both what people perceive as stressful and how they cope with it. Basic conceptual and methodological issues are reviewed in depth, and the strengths and weaknesses of various research models and measurement techniques are detailed. Topics covered include the psychophysiology of stress; the relationship between coping and health; coping with trauma; the development of coping strategies through the lifespan; cultural ramifications of coping; and the adaptive effects of stress.
