Handbook of Stress, Coping, and Health: Implications for Nursing Research, Theory, and Practice

This is the first comprehensive Handbook to examine the various models of stress, coping, and health and their relevance to nursing and related health fields. No other volume provides a compendium of key issues in stress and coping for the nursing and allied health professions. In this new edition, the authors assembles a team of expert practitioners and scholars in the field to present the broad range of issues that relate to stress and health such as response-oriented stress, stimulus-oriented stress, stress, coping, and health in children, family health, beliefs and cultural attitudes, and more. In its First Edition, this Handbook was 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 cutting-edge research.
