Abstract: SESSIONS WERE HELD IN DECEMBER 1978 FOR THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF CRIME CORRELATES AND CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE (NILECJ). THE PARTICIPANTS WERE INVOLVED IN STRESS RESEARCH, AND SOME WERE STUDYING RELATED CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROBLEMS.

THE MAJOR TOPICS ADDRESSED INCLUDED THE DEFINITION OF STRESS, METHODOLOGICAL ISSUES, DIFFERENTIAL RESPONSES TO STRESS, SOCIOCULTURAL AND ETHNIC FACTORS, BIOLOGICAL FACTORS, APPLIED RESEARCH, STRESS IN PRISONS, AND THE ETHICS OF USING HUMAN SUBJECTS IN STRESS RESEARCH. SUMMARIES OF WRITTEN PAPERS, DIAGRAMS, CHARTS, AND TABLES ARE INCLUDED.
