Stress Management Model for the Elementary/Middle/High School.
Matthews, Doris B.
The Matthews Stress Management formula is a stress management model for use in schools. This effective, practical, and inexpensive model entails the awareness of the physiology of stress, perception of tangible bases of motivation for children, appropriate and simplified techniques, applicability to other areas, and full recognition of the position, function, and implementation of relaxation skills. The model's formula has four factors--awareness, benefits, change, and dependency--which result in relaxation. Qualified personnel, who are sensitive and aware of individual needs and community demands and requirements, should administer or supervise the program. School officials and teachers must work closely and carefully with the parents of children in the program. Through the Matthews Stress Management formula, students can gain confidence, acquire poise, and shape aggressiveness to positive ends, conquer anxiety and timidity, and enjoy new feelings of worth and wellness.
