The concept of stress and, indeed, research on stress has reached an all-time peak in popularity during the past decade. An ever increasing number of books and journals devoted exclusively to stress are being published, courses and seminars are being offered in this area, and references to stress in the mass media abound. With this heightened awareness of stress--meaning here essentially all that is unpleasant, noxious or excessively demanding--an interest in stress reducing techniques, or stress management, has given birth to a new specialty in the health sciences.
The techniques in this course represent twenty-five years of cumulative experience in the fields of stress management and behavioral medicine. As a researcher, teacher and author, I have been frustrated by existing stress courses that describe only one technique--which may or may not work for a participant's particular stress problems.
This seminar is different, and I hope it meets your needs. It contains the best of the brief, clinically proven techniques for relieving stress that we have developed in our lives. It will explore various stress reducing techniques for each source of stress in your professional and/or personal life.
