The Brazilian section of the International Stress Management Association (ISMA-BR), a not-for-profit organization that studies stress and ways to prevent it, together with two renowned American researchers, has organized the eighth volume of the series Stress and Quality of Working Life: Coping at Work and at Home. The new volume offers some of the latest theories and methods on how to cope with stress and quality of working life issues based on the experience and knowledge of recognized international experts in this field.
