Stress Management Workbook
SKU / ISBN:
Author: Pfeiffer, Richard
Stress needs no introduction - it is stated that it is the major factor in many common illnesses. Stress seems to be an accepted part of many people's lives until it is too much. This workbook is designed to help people manage the factors causing stress.
The goal of this workbook is to help you manage the stress of life more effectively. You will discover whether you have a tendency to respond to life events in a way that may indicate some qualities of Stress Prone Personality (SPP). We will explore the issues of shame, perfectionism, control, people pleasing and competence.
The best predictor of a positive outcome is your willingness to honestly examine and admit any characteristics of SPP. Because The Stress Management Workbook requires a great deal of compliance in the form of assignments, exercises, homework, and self-monitoring, you will need to be motivated. Think for a moment what stress has cost you in terms of your relationships, health, work life and finances.
The workbook is organised to enable completion of one session per week. You need to make a commitment in advance to set aside time for the entire 12 sessions of the workbook. Stick with it and discuss your dissatisfactions with a trusted friend instead of dropping out. Because the workbook's focus is on developing skills, and each new skill relies to some extent on what has previously been learned, you will need to do the sessions in sequence. It is best to do one session per week, however, you may complete the sessions at a faster pace without significant consequences. Completion of this workbook will pay off in many ways.
