Overview

Stress and Emotion: A New Synthesis by Richard Lazarus

This volume is a sequel to the landmark work that established an exciting new field of study, Stress, Appraisal and Coping. The author explores the newest trends in research and theory, making clear distinctions between social stress, physiological stress, and psychological stress. By integrating stress and emotion into one theoretical framework, with appraisal and coping as its basis, this book takes a narrative approach to theory and research. Lazarus concludes with a look at stress and health, focusing on new developments in infectious diseases, the role of the nervous system, and his view of recent changes in psychotherapy.

About the Author

Richard S. Lazarus (1922-2002) received his BA from The City College of New York in 1942 and his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 1948. He taught at Johns Hopkins University, Clark University, and, from 1957 until his retirement in 1991, the University of California, Berkeley. At Berkeley, Dr. Lazarus began his influential research into psychological stress and coping processes which contributed substantially to the "cognitive revolution" that occurred in psychology during the 1960's. Dr. Lazarus published over 200 scientific articles in social, personality, clinical, and health psychology and 20 books, including Psychological Stress and the Coping Process (1966), Stress, Appraisal, and Coping (1984), and Emotion and Adaptation (1991). Dr. Lazarus became a Guggenheim Fellow in 1969 and received two Doctors Honoris Causa, one in 1988 from Johannes Gutenberg University, Germany and one in 1995 from Haifa University, Israel. In 1989 he was awarded the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award by the American Psychological Association.
