Computer Analyzed Stress-Episode Cards: A Self-Awareness Feedback Technique.
Daniels, Craig E.
This document addresses the problem faced by stress management programs in their attempts to increase self-awareness of stress response patterns and sources of stress. Drawbacks to the techniques of daily diaries and stress logs are noted and the use of computer-analyzed stress episode cards as a self-awareness feedback technique is explained. The procedure used to complete the cards after self-defined stressful events is described and the use of weekly individual computer printouts which contain an analysis and organization of card information is discussed. The popularity of stress-episode cards is briefly reviewed, and sample cards are provided, accompanied by instructions for card completion and a sample printout of a stress-episodes analysis. (NRB)
