Psychological Stress

Three Volume Set
Edited by:

September 2015 | 1 056 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Stress has been called the 'great modern disease' and it causes many negative effects for societies, organizations, and individuals. Stress may also be responsible for psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, and burnout. Indeed, stress and its consequences have been described in the literature since the 19th-century with William James and Carl Lange’s work.  

This three-volume major work contains articles which trace the development of ideas around stress from the early twentieth century to the modern day,  spanning the fields of psychology, applied mental health, coaching, and cognitive behavioural psychotherapy.

Volume One: The History and Development of Theories
Volume Two: The Measurement of Stress
