Book Description

STRESS MANAGEMENT FOR LIFE: A RESEARCH-BASED EXPERIENTIAL APPROACH, THIRD EDITION emphasizes experiential learning and clearly explains the ""how to"" of stress management and prevention. Michael Olpin and Margie Hesson offer students more than just a book about stress; they offer students a life-changing experience. This text empowers students to experience personal wellness by understanding and managing stress. The authors encourage students to personalize the information in the text through practical applications and a ""tool-box"" of stress-reducing resources, including the stress relief audio files and student activities, both found on the CourseMate Website. Well-researched, this text gives stress-related topics a real-life context and helps motivate students to manage stress in a way that accommodates their lifestyle, values and goals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good June 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very comprehensive textbook both for lecture and life itself. Use exercises while acknowledging a deeper understanding of stress literature. Self-assessments are also very useful for self-awareness.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for my stress management class and this literature was very well written. Not only was this book good for the class but it had a lot of great tips for life in general. Personally it was not a boring book at all, made a lot of sense and helped understand how stress develops.

For the price I paid for the book, I expected this used book to be in better condition. Because it was 90 dollars, I expected it to be nearly new. However, this book is obviously used and is not worth the 90 dollars. Even my professor was surprised that it cost 90 dollars.
