Trotter, Jennie C.
Everyone experiences stress; there is no escaping it. This manual is concerned with teaching young people various positive coping skills to help them handle stress in their lives. It is designed to help professionals such as teachers, nurses, school counselors, and youth recreational leaders teach students lessons on stress management. It is expected that the student will learn to recognize stress and handle it in a positive way through self-understanding. Some physical stress-reduction techniques, such as yoga, massage, pressure points, and biofeedback are introduced. The activities and exercises are designed to be experienced in group settings, although some exercises are intended to be completed individually. The stress management curriculum is presented in 20 lessons. A resources section contains lists of 42 print references, 7 tapes, 5 visual aids, and 11 albums and tapes. An order form is included for products of the wholistic Stress Control Institute. (SLD)
