Summary
  • "Stress Management: From Basic Science to Better Practice examines documented pathways between stress and health and develops the scientific foundations for sound interventions. The book begins with a broad review of the term stress and its importance for health. The text then provides a critical examination of the elements of the stress process, extracts supporting research for a rationale of stress management, and describes various stress management techniques and their effectiveness."
  • "In Stress Management, author and renowned stress researcher Wolfgang Linden reviews the literature on intervention outcomes, noting weaknesses such as an overemphasis on individual rather than societal responsibility for stress and coping and a disregard for the emerging field of positive psychology. The author concludes the text with a proposed distinction between psychotherapy and stress management, and he proposes the need for three distinguishable subtypes of stress management programs - a systematic-preventative approach: a broad-based stress vaccination and prevention type of protocol; and a reactive, problem-solving type of stress reduction intervention."--Jacket
