"This is the best single book published to date on stress management. It incorporates salient reviews of the literature as well as practical information for implementing these interventions. Not only are a wide variety of treatments considered, but there are chapters on their use in specific disorders...5 stars!" - Doody's Review Service "Lehrer et al. have assembled a distinguished group of experts to produce a volume that is both comprehensive and timely. It covers all of the major theoretical perspectives on stress and stress management, and provides an ideal balance between reviewing the latest scientific findings and offering detailed, practical, step-by-step descriptions of various treatment approaches. This is a perfect text for students or clinicians who are looking for one book on the topic of stress management, as well as for researchers who study this area." - Martin M. Antony, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Toronto, and Anxiety Treatment and Research Centre, St. Joseph's Healthcare, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada "I have dozens of works on stress management on my shelves, but this one is among the most valuable and useful. I rely on it extensively in teaching and recommend it to my students as a vital reference and professional guide." - Mark S. Schwartz, Department of Psychiatry and Psychology (Emeritus), Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida, USA "Chapters are well organized and include theoretical foundations, reviews of the empirical literature, discussion of clinical issues, and illustrative case studies. This book will be a valuable resource for clinicians and researchers and a useful text for graduate courses on stress management." - Ruth A. Baer, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Kentucky, USA "Provides a comprehensive update of theoretical and empirical foundations of stress management, giving close attention to the practical needs of clinicians. And at a time of renewed interest in complementary and alternative medicine, this book's coverage of research and clinical issues provides a model for all to consider in the development and evaluation of new approaches in health care." - David Shapiro, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences (Emeritus), UCLA School of Medicine, and Psychophysiology Laboratory, UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, USA
