Dealing With Stress: A Major Component of a Parent Education Program.
Matthews, Doris B.; Quinn, Jimmy L.
This paper presents a problem-solving process for stress management, which is based on the premise that the ability to manage stress is a survival skill necessary for parents if they are to provide a home environment conducive to children's social, emotional, and mental growth. The materials delineate a four-stage model for the: (1) identification of stress; (2) analysis of the sources of stress; (3) development of a stress management plan; and (4) implementation and evaluation of the management plan. Relaxation techniques, cognitive restructuring, positive addiction, time management, support systems, and professional assistance are described in detail as effective stress management techniques. These coping techniques are suggested as appropriate methods for reducing tension and improving the quality of home life. (Author/ JAC)
