About the Book

Stress Cognition and Health examines the key issues in the psychology of stress and health, bringing together a wide range of material generally not found in a single text. It looks at how the external world makes demands upon individuals - potentially causes of stress - while at the same time providing them with resources to cope with stress. It covers topics such as work and employment, families, commuting, large-scale disasters and daily hassles and considers how these impact on biological processes through effects on the immune system.
