This is a clinically-oriented investigation into the sources of stress, the forms of stress response and the current array of treatment possibilities. An outgrowth of the American Psychological Association's Task Force on Psychiatric Therapies, it brings together contributions from many of the country's leading psychiatrists who possess expertise in the various syndromes associated with human stress. Provides both a sharp focus on specific treatments and an overall consideration of stress response that uses adjustment disorders as prime examples. A rich and provocative collection of professional perspectives in this controversial area of modern psychiatric thinking, it will also serve as a solid foundation for future research activities.
