Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1330–1331. Reviews the book, Cognitive Coping, Families, and Disability edited by Ann P. Turnbull, Joan M. Patterson, Shirley K. Behr, Douglas L. Murphy, Janet G. Marquis, and Martha J. Blue- Banning (see record 1993-97224-000). This ambitious volume was inspired by a participatory research conference cosponsored by the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and the Beach Center in Lawrence, Kansas. The purposes of the conference were: 1) to synthesize theory, research, practice, and personal experience related to cognitive coping in individuals and in families, and 2) to conceptualize a research agenda aimed at supporting families to enhance cognitive coping.“ The book is designed to disseminate some of the information and ideas generated during the conference to multiple audiences.
