A recommended reading for the student that has a keen interest in occupational health psychology and stress in particular. The mutual influence between biological and psychological components is key for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon and its prevention.
very interesting chapters covering the most important topics related to stress.
Technical language very well explained making the book very accessible
excellent coverage of bioloical topics in stress
Very informative book clearly explaining the finner detail of the effects of stress. We incorporated some of this finner detail into the professional regulatory unit of the course
was not appropriate to level of knowledge
A very informative text but a bit too physiological for our purposes. But I sure will recommend it to students interested in the physiological aspects of stress (and health).
This is a really detailed and research-evidenced journey through the psychobiology of stress, and is one of the texts at the forefront of reporting on psychoneuroimmunology at an accessible level. It explicates what is know, identifies what may be inferred and demonstrates that some research may be interesting but inconclusive. By resisting the broad, but unsupported, sweep of the relationships between stress and physiology, and between "types" and stress reactions, this text explores individual differences and how they interact with stress to affect health outcomes.
