Over the course of a lifetime, people are vulnerable to stress and anxiety in various domains, which may lead to impaired well-being and deteriorated health. To address both aspects, this book comprises two parts which deal with stress, anxiety and coping (1) over the life span and (2) in the context of health promotion. Part one is concerned with stressful person-environment interactions and the ways stress impact upon individual and group functioning in different life phases. For example, sources of adolescents' stress may include school demands and frustrations due to sexuality, while stress among the elderly might be caused by negative thoughts and feelings about physical deterioration and social isolation. Part two is dedicated to recent research on health promotion. Over time, stress and anxiety may lower resistance and make people more vulnerable to illness. From that perspective, antecedents, side effects and consequences of stress that may cause limitations in physical and psychological functioning are investigated, leading to a variety of serious health problems.

Many people suffer from feelings of stress and anxiety in their everyday lives. For people with Asperger Syndrome (AS), this stress can be particularly difficult to manage. On a daily basis people with AS must fit into a world that seems totally foreign to them and this can increase feelings of alienation and anxiety, making life's challenges especially hard to cope with. The first book on anxiety written specifically for adults with Asperger Syndrome, this book offers practical advice on how individuals with AS can manage their anxiety more effectively. As a person with AS who has struggled with feelings of anxiety and learnt how to overcome them, Nick Dubin shares his own tried and tested solutions along with up-to-date research on stress management for individuals with AS, including a chapter on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Dubin explores the key problem areas that can lead to anxiety for people with AS such as lack of social skills, difficulties establishing romantic relationships and uncertainty about employment. Asperger Syndrome and Anxiety provides real solutions to a common problem and is essential reading for anyone with AS who has trouble managing stress. The book will also be of interest to family members, teachers and other professionals working with individuals with AS.

We present this collection of peer-reviewed papers covering a contemporary exploration of old and new concepts in the area of stress, anxiety, and coping. The papers include a consideration of the age-old questions concerning maths and test anxiety and the factors which predict or mediate these to a theoretical discussion of what is stress and how do we measure it. Several papers focus on stress and coping in applied settings, such as among patients with chronic disease, panic disorder, and also in those who play sport. Further papers are devoted to stress and coping in educational and academic settings and examine factors which contribute to students' learning as well as those which influence teachers' occupational stress. The recent emphasis by positive psychologists on resilience as well as coping has also featured here with chapters looking at their contributions to psychological health. However, the question is posed as to whether resilience and coping are cut from the same cloth.
