School Stress Management Training: An Integrated Approach.
Friedman, Myron H.; And Others
This research documents the development and empirical testing of a theoretically based training program aimed at reducing debilitating anxiety and increasing the skills required for successfully coping with stressful situations in the school setting. The intervention used is an integrated approach incorporating relaxation and deep-breathing training designed to deal with Emotionality (physiological arousal); cognitive restructuring techniques aimed at moderating Worry (self-directed ruminations which distract attention from the task); and specific skills training designed to remedy Skill Defecits (poor study habits, inadequate social skills). Preliminary analyses indicate that the combined treatment group is more effective than treatments dealing with single components of anxiety. Further evaluation of the intervention's effectiveness in reducing anxiety and its negative consequences is in process. (Author/LFB)
