The Third Edition of Family Stress Management by Pauline Boss, Chalandra M. Bryant, and Jay A. Mancini continues its original commitment to recognize both the external and internal contexts in which distressed families find themselves. With its hallmark Contextual Model of Family Stress (CMFS), the Third Edition provides practitioners and researchers with a useful framework to understand and help distressed individuals, couples, and families. The example of a universal stressor—a death in the family—highlights cultural differences in ways of coping. Throughout, there is new emphasis on diversity and the nuances of family stress management—such as ambiguous loss—plus new discussions on family resilience and community as resources for support.

Increasing awareness of stress has led to an exploration of stress management options, primarily for individuals. While people experience stress individually, it collectively and interactively affects families as well. This participatory action research consisted of 16 co-researcher families, who collaborated with the investigating researcher for at least six weeks to explore family stress and examine the effectiveness of the intervention. The collaboration included: personalizing the intervention by developing an action plan; discussing family stress in a pre-interview; recursively practicing, reflecting upon, and refining the intervention; and analytically reflecting about the entire process in a post-interview. Of the 16 families, 10 families reported that participating as co-researchers had improved their family's stress management, 3 found it to be of neutral or marginally positive effect, and the other 3 discontinued before the post-interview. The investigating researcher analyzed the data thematically using the QSR-N6 software. Three predominant themes emerged solely from the data: grief, extended family, and synchronicity with life. The themes of deliberate scheduling, awareness, bonding and communication, and suggested project improvements were somewhat foundational to either action research in general or this intervention in particular; thus, the investigating researcher and families also explored them collaboratively.

Dr. Jere Phillips has over forty years of ministry, including experience as a state-based missions administrator, pastor, and extensive overseas service on six continents. He is also a stress survivor. Motivated by two life-threatening illnesses, he began an intense study of stress management, which he has assimilated with over twenty years of interaction with missionaries in North America and internationally.

The study of family stress has been dominated by the ABC-X model developed over several decades by Rueben Hill and other researchers. Now, the distinguished authors of this volume, along with a group of their colleagues and students, reexamine the theoretical literature in search of a better way of understanding stress and its management in families. They liberate their inquiry by setting aside traditional positivist notions in favor of a systematic paradigm--one that allows them to view stress as a multifaceted phenomenon with multiple causes and coping strategies. Then, using a series of qualitative and quantitative studies of different families in stress, they outline the various patterns of family responses to stress, the elements of the family system impacted by stressful events, and the helpfulness and harmfulness of management strategies in different families. The research and theory found in Reexamining Family Stress--and its implications for practitioners--is an important step forward in our understanding and dealing with families experiencing stress. "In Reexamining Family Stress, authors Wesley R. Burr, Shirly R. Klein, and associates present a systemic model of family stress that moves sharply away from the popular, positivist ABC-X models. Within this presentation, the authors include a comprehensive discussion of the theory upon which they build their model and of the outcome research they completed to answer the unique questions that emerged in the model's development." --Journal of Family Therapy "In Reexamining Family Stress, Wesley R. Burr, Shirley R. Klein, and associates offer the field a fresh perspective to family stress theory. Their book builds on the earlier theory building efforts by Robert Burr, using a systemic approach, and tests this refined theoretical approach with an empirical study. . . . The book makes a unique contribution to the family stress field." --Journal of Marriage and the Family "Highly recommended to professionals and students in the fields of health promotion, social work, and family and mental health in all settings (work, religious, community, provider, etc.). With a growing concern about the health of the family amidst the sea of potential family and societal stressors, this book offers many excellent insights and perspectives, and well-documented recommendations on some of the most effective coping strategies. Many of these strategies can be developed, nurtured, and strengthened throughout life allowing all members of the family to be better prepared when family (or life) stressors are encountered. Even if stressors are minimal, many of these same strategies are good for building strong, thriving families and individuals. This is a book well worth the reading!" --American Journal of Health Promotion

Asperger Syndrome and Anxiety provides real solutions to a common problem and is essential reading for anyone with AS who has trouble managing stress.
