This book is about coping with the everyday stress we all face. We want to talk with folks who are functioning fairly well in their lives but who could profit from some guidance in handling those day-to-day issues that cause emotional distress. From a psychological perspective, we offer techniques and suggestions for organizing your thoughts and actions to cope more effectively with your stressors that are a part of living. We focus on three basic emotions that affect everyone: grief, anxiety, and anger. We then look at specific aspects of child-rearing that cause stress and have special sections on autism and drug/alcohol issues. We discuss moderate depression as it relates to everyday problems and how you can move forward with your life. This book is not intended for those with severe psychological problems that require professional psychotherapy, psychiatric medication, or possibly hospitalization. In fact, the book offers a coping vaccination that might help immunize you against more severe psychological dysfunctions.
