This book attempts to map the influence of early stressful experiences on later life outcomes, studying the trajectories of stressors over the life course. It examines the ramifications of stressful events at key life course transition points, and explores the diversity of outcomes for individuals who have suffered through trauma. Finally, the book suggests new methods for study of stress and adversity through the life course, where issues of timing, ordering, and sequencing of stressors are crucial.

"This book attempts to map the influence of early stressful experiences on later life outcomes, studying the trajectories of stressors over the life course. It examines the ramifications of stressful events at key life-course transition points and explores the diversity of outcomes for individuals who have suffered through trauma. Finally, the book suggests new methods for the study of stress and adversity thorugh the life course, where issues of timing and sequence of stressors are crucial." Family Therapy "Gotlib and Wheaton have provided researchers and practitioners concerned with the study of the effects of various stressors on mental health a new and particularly helpful tool- one that focuses on complexity and positive and negative outcomes and one that focuses on both specific types of stress and on the timing and accumulation of adversity across the life span while maintaining the call for increased rigor and definition in measurement. What they offer here is a way of thinking about stress and the life course that suggests not the inevitability of consequences, but the hope for a wider range of suggestions and solutions for further study and treatment."
