Editors: Lee, Annette V.
Book Description:
If there is a single challenge a person faces in every stage of life from birth to death, it is the necessity of coping with life’s exigencies. These often include health problems, social stress, and perceived difficulties. The ability to deal with these issues defines an individual to a large extent and can accelerate or brake one’s development in the multitude of mental and physical pathways intrinsic to life. Coping behaviors include talking out a problem, crying, laughing, relaxation, ignoring the problem, praying, looking for the positive aspects of a situation, assuming everything is terrible, taking medication, hoping a problem will go away, attacking the problem with willpower, cognitive therapy etc. This new book examines new research which will shed light on coping behaviors in a vast array of disease situations.
