BIO

Dr. Krause's work focuses on stress and the resources people use to cope with it. In particular, he is interested in stress and health among the elderly, and religion and health in late life. Many researchers believe these stressors may have an adverse effect on both physical and mental health. Yet it is also true that most people who are exposed to a stressor do not subsequently experience health problems. This suggests they must have some resources they rely on to cope effectively with stress. Among the resources Dr. Krause studies are supportive social relationships and religion.
