This chapter focuses on a metatheory of stress and coping, and advances five main points. Much of what is presented here has been detailed elsewhere (Lazarus and Folkman, 1984; Lazarus, 1966; Lazarus, DeLongis, Folkman and Gruen, 1985). Nonetheless, particularly important new efforts in this area are highlighted.
