Stress Management Resource

I would like to recommend a resource for those of you who want more information on stress management.  Walt Schafer (a retired professor of sociology and acting dean at California State University, Chico) has written a book titled Stress Management for Wellness which is published by Thomson - Wadsworth.  Although I have owned several editions of this title, the current edition is the Fourth Edition, 2000.

This book is often used as a college textbook for physical education and health-related courses.  At 488 pages of text, it includes more than you can imagine about this topic.  The text is in a very readable style and packed with references to studies from a number of fields.  Personal assessment instruments, application exercises, and more are included.  Although I have not seen it, there is apparently an Instructor's Manual/Test Bank as well as the text. 

Amazon indicates that there is a companion 175-page Student Workbook with the same main title that is co-authored with Sharrie A. Herbold and published by Harcourt (July 1999).  Again, I have not actually reviewed this additional volume. (alj)
