Reviews

It seems that everyone is stressed--by global health threats, by politics, by a legion of challenges that confront humankind. And with these stressors come remedies offered by pundits of varying qualification. For years, this handbook, edited by highly respected scholar-clinicians, has been a welcome resource. It provides searching, thoughtful analyses of the complexities of managing stress, integrating the scientific literature with findings from front-line clinicians. The fourth edition doesn't disappoint--Lehrer and Woolfolk have once again produced an inestimably valuable work for professionals and students.--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California Stress is a ubiquitous human experience, with sources and consequences that are highly varied. In this timely fourth edition of a classic, Lehrer and Woolfolk gather the field's top researchers to unpack both the theory and the facts underlying stress. Chapters highlight the physiological, psychological, and social pathways to outcomes ranging from harm to resilience, and review multiple approaches to the amelioration of stress, from psychopharmacology to meditative practices. This is a rich resource for both researchers and clinicians, and a comprehensive orienting text for advanced students in this area.--Richard M. Ryan, PhD, Institute for Positive Psychology and Education, Australian Catholic University; Professor Emeritus, University of Rochester An encyclopedic and foundational reference. Lehrer and Woolfolk are major figures who have led the field of stress management for four decades, and who have assembled a remarkably gifted team of expert authors. This fourth edition greatly updates the scientific research, expands the list of authors, and sharpens the focus of many chapters. This book is a 'must read' for serious practitioners in stress management, and belongs on the easiest-to-reach shelf of every practitioner and researcher in the broader field of psychophysiology.--Donald Moss, PhD, Dean, College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences, Saybrook University-

The volume reviews the conceptual basis for evidence-based interventions, physiological systems in the stress process, treatment of different populations, and a range of specific stress management methods. Each chapter is written in a clear, accessible manner that will be useful for clinicians, researchers, and graduate students in fields that integrate physical and mental health. --David S.
