Capitalizing on Stress Management Techniques in Developmental Classes.
Price, Elsa C.
Mastering stress management techniques can help college developmental class educators protect themselves from burnout. These techniques can also be taught to students in developmental classes to enable them to maximize the benefits from these classes. This paper outlines the causes of stress, identifies stressors, describes responses to stress, and discusses five coping skills that can be used by both students and teachers in developmental classes to handle the stressors of life and channel the stress responses in a useful way. The five coping skills presented are: (1) cognitive restructuring; (2) deep breathing; (3) muscle relaxation; (4) cue-controlled relaxation; and (5) visual imagery. The appendices give specific examples of exercises related to each coping skill discussed. Thirty-nine references are listed. (IAH)
