This volume offers original studies on relaxation and stress management. Practitioners will find a wealth of specific, ready-to-use, evidence-based suggestions for incorporating relaxation techniques into their clinical work. Part I summarizes practical advances in the theory, research, and assessment of relaxation. Part II is an anthology of 25 studies on relaxation focusing on individual differences; stress, coping and relaxation; factor analyses and correlations; and practice techniques. An appendix offers a complete relaxation inventory of scales for those interested in developing their own studies.
