Created for such Psychology, Nursing, Social Work, and Counseling/Education courses as Stress and Tension, Health Promotion, and Stress Management. Appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate levels.
This guide to stress management avoids a “cookbook” of answers and techniques and instead develops in readers a creative resourcefulness and the general ability to explore a wide variety of coping strategies while effectively applying those that work best. Part I presents a manual of basic problem-solving principles that underlie stress management. Parts II and III offer a comprehensive library of coping strategies with a wealth of ideas for readers to explore, and each self-contained chapter introduces concrete and practical instructions for a different coping option.
