It is commonly acknowledged that stress and coping has an impact upon the productivity, health and well-being of individuals. As such, many domains of psychology are seeking to better understand the stress and coping dynamic to inform the construction of interventions intended to facilitate coping. This book is designed to profile the use of theory in guiding the structure, content and assessment of coping interventions across a range of applied domains. The domains addressed within the text include sport psychology, clinical psychology, organisational psychology, developmental psychology, police psychology and health psychology. This book brings together related issues regarding the application of theory to practice into a single source. (Imprint: Nova)
