Stress Management for School Personnel.
A discussion is presented on the psychological and physical nature and origin of stress, changes in life stages that individuals make in response to events, and situations in life that create pressure and tension. This discussion is followed by examples of how to deal with stress through awareness of: communication skills; coping techniques, both physical and psychological, which will aid in prevention; and management and alleviation of stress. Four basic approaches to coping with stress are outlined: (1) reorganize life management and control styles; (2) manage the work environment by controlling its surroundings; (3) change attitudes toward the stressors in life; and (4) build up physical and psychological strengths and endurance.
