This is the first book that reviews both empirical and clinical applications of how couples jointly cope with stress - dyadic coping - around the globe. The Systemic-Transactional Stress Model (STM), developed by co-editor Guy Bodenmann, is used as a consistent framework so readers can better appreciate the contrasts and similarities across the fourteen cultures represented in the book. Written by scholars from the particular culture, each chapter provides a conceptual review of the dyadic coping research conducted in their specific cultures, and also provides empirical and clinical recommendations. Additional contributions include how to measure dyadic coping, so others can apply the STM model in other contexts. The latest treatment approaches for therapy and prevention are also highlighted, making this book ideal for professionals interested in expanding their cultural competence when working with couples from various backgrounds.

Highlights include:

-How couples in different cultures deal with stress and how values and traditions affect dyadic stress and coping.
-Global applications, especially to couples in the regions highlighted in the book -- the U.S (including one chapter on Latino couples in the U.S.)., Australia, China, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal, Romania, and Switzerland.
-Factors encountered in examining dyadic coping using the STM Model including measurement and assessment issues.
-Suggestions for making treatment, prevention, and intervention programs for couples more effective.

Ideal for relationship researchers, psychologists, mental health counselors, social workers, and advanced students who work with couples dealing with stress. This book is also appropriate for advanced courses on interpersonal processes, close relationships, stress and coping, multicultural issues in marriage and family therapy or counseling, or family systems, taught in a variety of social science disciplines.

Review:

 "This book provides an outstanding, empirically-based source for insights into couple interactions across 14 cultural groups. Readers will be stimulated to think about couple interactions in new ways and identify implications for understanding resilience and dyadic intervention in a cultural context. A "must read" for graduate students and established researchers, it will help move the field forward."- Steven R. H. Beach, University of Georgia, USA

"This seminal volume addresses a major void in the field by examining positive processes of support and couple adaptation – with a focus on commonalities and variations across culture. This tour de force brings together experts from around the world to produce a volume of interest to anyone engaged in clinical interventions or research with couples."- Douglas K. Snyder, Texas A&M University at College Station, USA

"I’m very pleased to recommend this book. It provides a long needed perspective on how couples respond to stress. By setting the focus on culture and diversity, it provides the necessary impulses for important new developments. This book could have no better editorship. It will be extremely useful for anyone interested in the topic." - Dominik Schoebi, University of Fribourg, Switzerland

"A timely overview of the ... dyadic coping research in different cultural contexts ... the book will appeal to students at all levels ... [and] all courses of couples research and/or therapy. ... [It] will be ... of interest to mental health practitioners and psychotherapists. ... I would definitely ... recommend it to my students and colleagues."Tanja Zimmermann, Hannover Medical School, Germany

The ... book ... would have strong appeal to those interested in family science, intimate relationships, diversity/cultural issues in couples’ research, and couple and family therapy ... It would appeal to graduate students ... [and] likely an essential purchase for my doctoral course on theory and research on couple and family relationships." - Norman B. Epstein, University of Maryland, USA

„[This book] ... would appeal to scholars in ... Family Studies and Multi-Cultural/Diversity/Cultural Issues in Couples’ Research. ... It might work well ... in a course on cultural psychology or the psychology of close relationships or comparable sociology or family studies courses. ...The material is timely [and] ... global." - Carolyn E. Cutrona, Iowa State University, USA
