A Choice Theory Psychology Guide to Stress

9.00

This book offers a fresh approach to stress and focuses on what you can do for yourself to manage this condition. The author views stress as a clear signal that things are not going well in a person’s life. Consequently the emphasis is on heeding the signal and investigating the possible causes of the stress, instead of simply addressing the symptoms.

In Choice Theory psychology, stress is not a weakness nor an illness. In fact, it is a vital piece of feedback about how we are running our lives. Stress can become a problem threatening our health and happiness but it is the underlying causes that need to be tackled if we are to manage our stress effectively.

The book gives a brief explanation of Choice Theory itself and how it applies to stress. This is followed by ideas on possible causes and ways of dealing with these. There are chapters on general skills such as time-management, decisions and plans.
