With more than 120 published articles and book chapters reflecting his many research interests, he has focused on the roles of meaning, appraisal, and culture in the stress and coping process. The Stress Appraisal Measure developed by Edward Peacock and P. T.P. Wong has been widely used. His resource-congruence model is one of the early coping theories that emphasize the importance of cultural context. As well, he is a pioneer in research on stress and coping in the Chinese elderly. His edited volume (with Prem Fry as co-editor) on The Human Quest for Meaning Lawrence (Erlbaum Associates, Publishers) has contributed to the current interest in meaning research. Lilian C. J.
