Managing Stress. Project Seed.
Muto, Donna; Wilk, Jan
One of eight papers from Project Seed, this paper describes a stress management project undertaken with high school sophomores. Managing Stress is described as an interactive workshop that offers young people an opportunity to examine specific areas of stress in their lives and to learn effective ways to deal with them. The program described consists of a 90-minute session that was incorporated into the 10th-grade health curriculum, but the program has been adapted for use with other populations as well. Four project goals are enumerated: (1) to learn to define stress; (2) to examine some causes of stress in one's life; (3) to describe the effects of stress on overall health; and (4) to demonstrate productive methods of managing stress. Resources needed to implement the program are discussed, and procedures and instructions are given in six steps. Materials to be used in the workshop are included at the end of the paper. (NB)
