"Here is a volume packed with detailed clinical and empirical information on everything from relaxation, yoga, meditation, hypnosis, autogenic training, biofeedback, control of respiration, cognitive therapy, and stress
inoculation training to music, aerobic exercise, and pharmacological interventions. Many luminaries have contributed individual chapters including Barber, Beck, Meichenbaum, Patel, Stoyva, and Budzynski, and the final section on integration, written by Lehrer, Woolfolk and their colleagues, brings this impressive tome together in a most compelling fashion." --Arnold A. Lazarus, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University
"The editors, Paul Lehrer and Robert Woolfolk, have fulfilled their promise of providing the practitioner with everything one could possibly want to know about the concepts, methods, and applications of stress reduction and stress management. The contributors to the volume are all highly respected masters of the field. Each chapter lays out in complete detail the historical background of the method, the philosophical and theoretical force behind it, how to do it, why it works, and for whom it may be appropriate. Although research on stress management is not a primary focus of the volume, the researcher will not be disappointed. The editors themselves conclude the volume with three truly comprehensive reviews of the major research questions in the field. These reviews, as well as the other chapters, are full of new ideas about how to look at the various areas of application in mental and physical health and where these fields are going and in each case backed up by hundreds of citations of relevant literature. After thirty years of working on issues in this field, I was surprised and intrigued by the many new ways of thinking about the meaning and consequences of stress for people and how the methods discussed can be effectively applied. I can't think of anyone i
The definitive resource for the field, Principles and Practice of Stress Management, 2nd Edition, is the only complete stress management reference in which methods are described by the author most closely associated with an established technique.
