Stress, Coping, and Development in Children
How does stress affect the coping abilities of children? Is response to stress a matter of nature, nurture, or both? Is stress good, bad, or neutral?
From a multiplicity of viewpoints, twelve eminent researchers and clinicians here examine the problems of stress in children. Considering stress from a neurochemical as well as a developmental perspective, they examine a wide range of specific stressors including prematurity, hospitalization, birth of a sibling, deprivation, death of a parent, divorce, and war. Stress, Coping, and Development in Children is a work of signal importance to psychologists and to every mental health professional involved with infants and children.
