||This book offers a comprehensive, orderly framework for practicing an effective stress management programme. Following a historical review of the stress field from its medical and physiological origins in the early 1900s, it goes on to examine the sources of stress, the psychophysiology of stress response and individual moderators that condition vulnerability for distress, the psychological, behavioural and medical forms of individual distress and the organizational costs of distress. A framework for preventive stress management that can be practiced by both organizations and individuals is proposed. Examples of healthy organizations are illustrated throughout the text, with specific cases of implementing preventive management systems.
