We propose an approximate but simple and general procedure for treating resonance broadening in weak-turbulence interactions. The resonance-broadening corrections to the wave-particle, wave-wave, nonlinear-Landau-damping, and four-wave weak-turbulence equations are computed as examples. The procedure may be used to predict at the outset whether resonance broadening occurs in a specific higher-order process.
