Coping with Stress

Effective People and Processes

Edited by C. R. Snyder

This companion volume to Coping: The Psychology of What Works covers some of the newest and most provocative topics currently under study in the area of coping. The contributors address such key questions as: Why do some of us learn from hardship and life's stressors? And why do others fail and succumb to depression, anxiety, and even suicide? What are the adaptive patterns and behaviors of those who do well in spite of the obstacles that are thrown their way? The chapters will look at ways of coping with stress such as the use of humor, forgiveness, control of hostile thoughts, constructing a coherent life story, personal spirituality, and personal growth.
