9780826141910: Stress, Appraisal, and Coping

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.

From the Publisher:

...a seminal document in the evolution of psychology. Those of us now laboring in any of the multiple fields he helped found will still find in this historic work ideas that enrich our thinking."
--From the Foreword by Daniel Goleman

"A seminal document in the evolution of psychology. Those of us now laboring in any of the multiple fields [Lazarus] helped found will still find in this historic work ideas that enrich our thinking."-- from the foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence, and Primal Leadership "The most widely read and cited academic book in this field."
-- American Psychologist

"Positively enchanting....the book is ambitious, intends to be comprehensive, is addressed to a wide audience of specialty groups, and is deserving of attention by those who are interested in gaining a useful perspective on stress management."
-- American Journal of Psychiatry

"A new book with Richard Lazarus as senior author arouses anticipation and intellectual excitement. Few researchers have devoted so much of their life-span to a concentrated analysis of the processes in stress and coping with stress."
-- British Journal of Psychology

"Richard Lazarus and Susan Folkman bring a well organized and unifying perspective to this untidy area of research. They present a theoretical framework for understanding stress, evaluate past research and alternative theories....All this is accomplished in a lucid style."
-- Journal of Human Stress

"A long and detailed treatment of the topic, which will undoubtedly be of interest to all those working in the field of stress reduction, counseling, and treatment. Those familiar with Richard Lazarus's 1966 book Psychological Stress and the Coping Process will no doubt know the direction of the argument, and will not be disappointed in finding the same views elaborated, developed, and referenced."
-- Behaviour Research and Therapy

"The careful and thorough presentation readily lends itself to research, clinical, and tutorial applications....The reader will find a provocative, well-referenced theoretical presentation of transactional adaptive interventions that involve appraisal, emotion, and coping strategies....From a pedagogical standpoint, the book is extremely well written. Each chapter is thoroughly outlined and an introduction and summary are included....The book could be considered not only as a source of information for past research on this topic but as an example of the development of a successful research program.....A welcome relief to a field in theoretical disarray. It will undoubtedly be a main, fundamental reference source for clinicians, educators, and researchers. Thus, it is a contribution that should be found on the shelves of all mental health investigators and professionals interested in this timely and critical topic.
-- Contemporary Psychology
