Stress Management With HKPropel Access-Loose-Leaf Edition
Developing Resilience in an Evolving World
Author: Pardess Mitchell
Everyone experiences stress in their lives. While it is a natural response to challenges, stress can have debilitating effects on both physical and mental health. Stress Management offers a fresh look at, and effective strategies for, managing stress and building resilience across six dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, and environmental. This foundational text takes a holistic approach to managing stress, detailing the effects of stress on the body and outlining techniques that examine root causes and proactive responses to stressors.
Stress Management offers a range of coping strategies that will help students formulate a well-rounded plan to tackle stress from multiple angles—before it occurs, while it is occurring, and after it occurs. That model is centered on four primary pillars:
- Source management—reducing or eliminating stress at its source
- Relaxation—employing techniques for breathing, meditation, and rest to focus the mind and relax the body
- Thought management—adopting a thought process to better manage the stressor
- Prevention—avoiding stress when possible
- Case studies with discussion questions that prompt students to consider real-world scenarios and contemplate ways to solve those stressors
- Research Spotlight elements that present current issues and hot topics related to stress
- Online learning tools, delivered through HKPropel, including audio mini lectures and short interviews, self-discovery activities, chapter quizzes that are automatically graded and provide immediate feedback, and vocabulary flash cards and quizzes
