This volume aims to present diverse perspectives on stress, personal control and health. It assesses the ways in which control is invoked in a range of health-relevant issues. The current state of knowledge is summarized and potential new integrative developments in research are highlighted. The disciplines represented by the contributors include public health and epidemiology, medical sociology, social psychiatry, experimental and clinical psychology, nursing studies and animal physiology. Research has been carried out in six countries. Part 1 covers the role of personal control in job settings and its influence on health. Part 2 details the effect of control on pain, emotional disorders, heart disease and coping with stressful medical procedures. The text concludes with an experimental view of behavioural and psychobiological responses to control.
