Coping with Aging by Richard S. Lazarus

Book Description

Coping with Aging is the final project of the late Richard S. Lazarus, the man whose landmark book Emotion and Adaptation put the study of emotion in play in the field of psychology. In this volume, Lazarus examines the experience of aging from the standpoint of the individual, rather than as merely a collection of statistics and charts. This technique is in line with his long-standing belief that experiences should be looked at in their specific contexts, rather than squeezed into an overly general statistical viewpoint that loses the subjects' motivations. Drawing on his five decades of pioneering research, Lazarus looks aging, emotion, and coping, and stability and change in both environment and personality. Because Lazarus mixes academic rigor with everyday examples, this volume will be both useful to scholars and accessible to the lay audience that has so much gain from a systematic understanding of aging and emotion.

Books By Author Richard S. Lazarus

Stress and Emotion by Richard S. Lazarus Stress and Emotion, Paperback (May 2006)

A sequel to "Stress, Appraisal and Coping", this volume explores the trends in research and theory, focusing on the rationale for a cognitive-meditation approach to stress and emotions. It makes distinctions between social stress, physiological stress, and psychological stress.

Passion and Reason by Richard S. Lazarus Passion and Reason, Paperback (June 1996)

'Passion and Reason' describes how readers can interpret what lies behind their own emotions and those of their families, friends, and co-workers. While not intended as a how-to book, its treatment of the emotions, the situations that arouse them, and how people deal with them provides useful ideas about how to manage our emotions more effectively.

Emotion and Adaptation by Richard S. Lazarus Emotion and Adaptation, Paperback (September 1994)

The author, a pioneer in the field of emotional behaviour, offers a theory of emotion that is cognitive, motivational and relational. The text should appeal to both advanced students and professional psychologists working in personality, social, cognitive and developmental psychology.
