Description

Comprehensive Stress Management integrates research and theories found useful when dealing with the inevitable occurrence of stress, with an emphasis on the interrelation of stress and illness. It empowers students to learn what stress is, evaluate their level of stress, and apply to their own lives the tools and skills to manage that stress. The book examines a variety of topics relevant to college students such as intrapersonal and interpersonal stressors, physiological reactions to stress, spirituality and stress, occupational stress, and family stress. Lab Assessments at the conclusion of each chapter help students relate what they have learned to their personal lives by encouraging them to identify specific attitudes, behaviors, and coping skills as well as target areas for improvement. The revised edition provides up-to-date information on cyberbullying, along with expanded discussions of home-based work and telecommuting, relabeling as an anxiety management tool, and the benefits of volunteering.
