The volume is designed to develop a framework which demonstrates how concepts and empirical data concerning vigilance and cognitive avoidance fit together with the current research on stress and coping. A central purpose of this book is to elaborate a more integrated approach to the study of these two central coping strategies. Special attention has been given to the following topics: Theoretical approaches to vigilance and avoidance
-- Research and measurement strategies
-- The role of attentional processes in the self-regulation of behavior
-- Uncertainty and emotional arousal as determinants of vigilance and avoidance
-- Flexibility and individual consistency in coping
-- Gender, age, and coping
-- Vigilant/avoidant coping and health status.

The book brings together authors distinguished by their substantial theoretical contributions and empirical investigations in the area of cognitive coping research.
