Summary

The book focuses on stress and coping in different contexts. It addresses areas related to stressful person-environment interactions and the ways that stress can have and impact upon individual and group functioning in different situations. The book comprises three parts which deal with stress, anxiety, and coping (1) during adolescence, (2) on the job and (3) in the context of personality. Part one is concerned with adolescents' stress at schoool and in risk groups. Part two is dedicated to stress and burnout of teachers, university staff, factory employees, and health professionals due to job strain. Part three deals with type D personality, anxiety, and perfectionism as mediators of stress. -- Blurb.
