Stress: Myth, Theory and Research

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, 2001 - Psychology - 310 pages

Appropriate as a core text for teaching stress at advanced undergraduate and MSc level within courses on health, and occupational or applied psychology. This book provides a broad, accessible introduction to the major issues relating to stress. It bridges the gap between popularised, or very basic, treatments of the subject on the one hand, and highly specialised academic research on the other, to give a good critical overview of the subject for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
