9781446270752: An Introduction to Stress and Health

"This is a highly entertaining book about a very serious topic. Beautifully written, funny and organized in a way that students and the general public will understand complex notions about stress."
- Sonia Lupien, Director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress, University of Montreal

"Perfect for my stress and cognition module, accessible and informative, great level of detail."
- James Byron-Daniel, University of the West of England, Bristol

An Introduction to Stress and Health is the first textbook to fuse the psychosocial with newer behavioural neuroscience perspectives. It provides a broad perspective of the multiple biological processes influenced by stressful events, the conditions that allow for either exacerbation or diminution of these stressor effects, and the pathological conditions that can emerge as a result of stressful events.

Anisman systematically reviews the key research over the past 30 years and presents his insights in a lively, interesting pedagogical fashion to allow you to fully appreciate the diversity of the field of stress and its impact on our health. Key features include:
  • A consideration of the value of numerous therapeutic strategies to diminish distress and stress-related pathologies.
  • An exploration of many new conceptual perspectives relevant to stress processes and pathology.
  • Information is presented in an easy-to-read manner with lots of pointers to the key concepts to remember.

An Introduction to Stress and Health is an indispensable text for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in health psychology, stress, health and illness.

About the Author:

Hymie Anisman received his PhD in 1972 (University of Waterloo), and has been a Professor at Carleton University, Ottawa, since that time, while also holding an adjunct appointment with the Institute of Mental Health Research (Royal Ottawa Hospital). Professor Anisman was a Senior Ontario Mental Health Research Fellow (1999-2006), is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and has held a Canada Research Chair in Neuroscience since 2001. The principle theme of his research has concerned the influence of stressors on neurochemical and neuroendocrine systems, and how these influence psychological (anxiety, depression) and physical (immune-related and neurodegenerative) disorders. His work has spanned animal models to assess stress-related pathology as well as studies in humans to assess stress, coping and appraisal processes. In this regard, he has assessed the impact of chronic strain emanating from discrimination and stigmatization on well-being, depression and PTSD among refugees from war-torn regions and among Aboriginal groups that suffered childhood traumatization, distress associated with abusive relationships and life transitions, as well as the transmission of trauma effects across generations. In addition to sitting on the editorial boards of several journals and on numerous grant panels,  Professor Anisman has published more than 350 peer reviewed journal papers and book chapters, and several review papers within neuroscience and psychology journals, and has edited two books, one dealing with stress processes and the second concerning psychoneuroimmunology. A mainstay of his Research program has been the training of students. More than Professor Anisman has completed 20 PhD and 50 MA/MSc students have graduated from his laboratory. His research has been funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Ontario Mental Health Foundation (OMHF), the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Canada Research chairs program (CRC).

Review:

This book provides a remarkably comprehensive, authoritative, informative and thoughtful overview of the subject of stress. It is scientifically sound and accurate, yet full of humor, stories and anecdotes, which exemplify, clarify and simplify complex concepts and information. Stress is one of the most important and influential experiences in the life of every person, constituting a major source of misery and illness. I therefore recommend this book to any intelligent and educated person who wants to understand the nature, mechanisms, and implications of stress, as well as the ways to overcome its potential adverse consequences.

This is a highly entertaining book about a very serious topic. Beautifully written, funny and organized in a way that students and the general public will understand complex notions about stress. If this book doesn't interest a new generation of students wishing to develop a career in stress research, then no book will!

This is an easy-to-read, accessible book. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book as a supporting text for any introductory health psychology course, or indeed, to anyone who wants an easy-to-read introductory text about stress and health. The back cover of this book suggests it is aimed at 'upper-level undergraduates and post-graduate students'. I would agree with that to a point but I think that this book would be good for first year undergraduate students too as an introductory text to the topic area. --Julie Udell, Department of Psychology, University of Portsmouth
