Helping students cope with stress

Stress is an unavoidable part of our everyday lives and while a little of it can be a good thing, a lot of stress is unhealthy.

Most students don’t know how to cope with stress and ignoring or mishandling it can lead to all sorts of negative consequences.

This book helps university students manage their own stress by exploring key issues of stress and stress management and offering evidence-based research and practical tools to deal with it.

It identifies common causes of stress in six dimensions of life – physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual and environmental – and presents tested ways in which students can manage that stress successfully.
