Coping and Adaptation: An Annotated Bibliography and Study Guide.
Coelho, George V., Ed.; Irving, Richard I., Ed.
This annotated bibliography concerns the styles and strategies used to cope with stressful situations and to adapt to pathological conditions, and provides mental health researchers and practitioners with recent, relevant mental health information on theoretical, developmental, clinical, behavioral, and social issues about coping and adaptation. The key substantive areas focus on major psychosocial and developmental transitions in the life cycle, stressful situations of rapid change, life-threatening crises of severe injury or illness, and seriously detrimental and handicapping conditions of individual or social origin. The volume is an updated, expanded, and revised edition of the bibliography prepared for the 1969 Conference on Coping and Adaptation held at Stanford University. In the annotated bibliography, the references and abstracts are arranged alphabetically, by author, and numbered in sequence. The study guide describes the 10 major subject areas used in selecting abstracts for the bibliography and provides a subject index for the bibliography. A complete author index is also included.
