Psychosocial Stress Series

Series Editor: Charles R. Figley

The Psychosocial Stress Series includes books that make a contribution to understanding the role of psychosocial stress as a context for causing and absorbing stress.

Psychosocial stress is broadly viewed to include interpersonal, social, familial, societal, social psychological, and sociological factors that are causes or consequences of stress. Stress is viewed as a demand for action not only on the part of the person, but in relation to others.

The first book in the Series, the classic Stress Disorders among Vietnam Veterans: Theory, Research, and Treatment, for example, not only discussed the individual war veterans' mental disorders, but also in relation to family, friends, and fellow veterans.

Future books in the Series continue the tradition of groundbreaking theory, research, assessment, treatment, and policy books that contribute to the various fields of study, and will include books that make contributions to history, positive psychology, personality, fear studies, and clinical innovation.
