Descripción / Abstract

This book celebrates the 40th anniversary of the STAR Society - the enduring legacy of our esteemed colleagues Charles Spielberger, Henk Van Der Ploeg, and Ralf Schwarzer who conceptualised the idea for a society focused on the measure of stress. Since that time, the focus has moved on from measurement alone, to include stress, coping and resilience: theory, research, and practice.

Exactly 20 years after its inception, we initiated the annual STAR Lifetime Career Award to members with a long and distinguished history of scientific contributions in the field of stress, anxiety and coping. Around the same time, the STAR Early Career Award was established to honour researchers achievements in the science of stress research within the first five years post their doctorate. Last, but not least STAR society gives a STAR Student Development Award to a student for the best paper on stress, anxiety and coping in theory, practice or research in the previous year. We invited all past award winners to contribute to this book which has yielded an exciting overview of the work of the individual researchers and their current research focus.
We thank those who have found the time to contribute to this book.
