Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Marian D. Rafal
Rosen's Coping With series continues to set the standard for quality informational books for young adults. Stress, what it is, its causes, and strategies for coping with it are addressed here in nontechnical language. Referring to the teen years as a period of transition, Packard discusses such stress-inducing factors as body changes, self-image, school, employment, college, sex, sleeping and eating habits, and family dynamics. He provides a common sense approach to identifying physical and nonphysical responses to internal and external pressures, as well as pressures brought on by crises and disasters. Suggested coping strategies include talking to yourself, friends and family, and counselors and support groups. There also is information on healthy stress, how to avoid unwanted stress, and how not to cope with stress. Adhering to the series format, the short chapters are easy to read and digest, with wide margins and clean type. The helpful list of resources includes ALATEEN, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America, Overeaters Anonymous, and several organizations in Canada. Glossary. Index. Further Reading. Appendix.

Gr 7 UpAfter identifying stress and enumerating its possible causes, Packard discusses various methods of dealing with it such as positive thinking; maintaining a healthy body; and talking with friends, family, and/or counselors and support groups. The author cautions against such quick fixes as drugs and alcohol. She gives sound advice for handling pressures of maturing, family, school situations, and natural disasters. This title is well written if somewhat repetitious. Although stress is often covered in other health books, this is a good, up-to-date addition.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
