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 students develop their own stress-management program. The Eighth Edition has been streamlined to make it more readable, useable, and relevant to the student. Cutting edge information, especially in the areas of emotional, relationship, and psychological stress, have been added.Girdano, Daniel is the author of 'Controlling Stress and Tension', published 2008 under ISBN 9780321537027 and ISBN 0321537025.
