This chapter reviews the literature on life changes, particularly as they relate to health, disease, and recovery from illness. One of the areas of greatest current activity concerns the quantitative assessment of these changes, which are often referred to as stressful life events. We shall review this topic and provide a theoretical perspective for future research.
