Overview

Stress doesn't just happen. It is a dynamic process involving you, a potential stressor, and a specific environment and set of circumstances. Coping with Stress in a Changing World will teach you how to manage all three elements of this process. The book uses the very practical, easy-to-learn Five Rs of Coping Model to help you become more stress resistant. The Five Rs—Rethink, Reduce, Relax, Release, and Reorganize—will empower you with a variety of strategies across five different levels of coping. Manage stressors with each strategy or in combination. These strategies alert you to potential stressors before they become full-blown stressors.
