This unique and comprehensive handbook examines the various models of stress, coping, and health and their relevance for nursing and related health fields. Building on the first edition that has been highly praised for its analysis and critique of existing models and its discussion of new research surrounding self-regulation and stress, this Second Edition continues to provide a critical analysis of the field while providing up-to-date cutting-edge research. Under the expert editorship of Dr. Virginia Hill Rice, experienced scholars and practitioners present a broad range of issues and research that relate to stress and health, such as response-oriented stress; stimulus-oriented stress and transactional stress, coping, and health in children, adolescents, and attitudes.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Nursing and non-nursing scholars in the field of stress and coping synthesize the findings over the past three decades on the relationship of stress and coping to health. They intend the result to serve as a primary source for graduate students and possibly a secondary source for undergraduate students in nursing and other health-care sciences. They discuss the diverse conceptualization of the relationship and their importance in nursing, the response- oriented and stimulus-oriented theories of stress, theories that purport to describe or predict the relationships of stress and coping with health outcomes, and moderating factors affecting the relationship. They also propose a theoretical model that incorporates most of the concepts discussed previously. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
