Overview

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book.

Controlling Stress and Tension takes a multifaceted, holistic approach to stress management. The first part of the book discusses the stress problem and our potential for achieving solutions to it. The next chapters examine potential stress-producing elements in everyday life. The remainder of the book offers techniques for alleviating stress and tension. Personal journal activities and self-assessments placed throughout the book encourage students to apply the concepts they have learned to themselves. These activities are brought together at the conclusion of the book, helping you develop your own stress-management program. The Ninth Edition has a strengthened supplements package, updates to content to keep the text current, and more practical activities.
