Emery J. Cummins
“I have never seen a more incisive approach to stress reduction and management. The 8 keys format is friendly and easy to use, with down-to-earth examples from daily life. Theoretically sound, eminently practical, and unequivocal without being rigid, this book presents an effective strategy for virtually any real-life situation.”
Pamela Gail Johnson
“8 Keys to Stress Management does an exemplary job of simplifying and explaining stress, addressing its physical and psychological aspects while providing practical examples of how to manage it. Elizabeth Scott reminds us that, while we can’t control all stressors, we can control our attitude, and this alone helps us to manage stress better.”
Ann-Marie McKelvey
“In a global culture where 'overwhelmed,' 'stressed-out,' and 'burned-out' are part of our daily vocabularies, Scott shows us evolutionary alternatives that allow us to live fully and healthily. This book will prompt you to realign with your true self... and, most of all, you'll get your twinkly back!”
Metapsychology Online Reviews
“[A] useful, practical guide to approaching stress. . . . [S]hort enough to be a quick read, yet substantial enough to be a worthwhile one.”
International Journal of Psychotherapy
“The text’s balanced emphasis on both physiological and mental process makes it a holistic and thorough guide for a broad audience. . . . [Scott’s] approach is collective and confident, a writing style that is ideal and even perhaps essential for readers experiencing issues with stress management. . . . [O]rganized and easy to read, 8 Keys to Stress Management is a convenient self-help tool for those looking to manage their stress more effectively.”
PsychCentral
“[This book] provides a thorough and detailed overview on the subject. . . . [T]he book gives us an opportunity to take more of a structured and introspective look at the self. It’s a resource that one might actively work through and then revisit later, rather than read once and put on the shelf. . . . Scott helps normalize the experience of stress and provides a wealth of information about how to manage it.”
