Title "Your stress manager" - An interactive medium for better handling of personal stress
Original title "Ihr Stressmanager" - Ein interactives Medium zum besseren Umgang mit pers÷nlichem Stress [in German]
Bibliographic information Sep.-Oct. 2007, Vol.117, No.9/10, p.4-9. Illus.
Abstract Within the European Union, 28% of workers claim to suffer from stress-related health problems and a United Kingdom study has shown that 54% of absenteeism is due to stress-related impairment. This article describes an interactive DVD on stress management aimed at enterprises, which can be used on a single PC or installed for multi-user access through the enterprise Intranet. It consists of several modules: definition of stress; stress inventory; relaxation techniques; problem-solving methods; time management; hobbies, pleasurable pastimes, sports and nutrition; stress management objectives and action plan; quality control; addresses and contacts. This concept aims to achieve stress prevention by acting at three levels: primary (preserving mental health); secondary (early recognition of problems and effective intervention); tertiary (improving health and well-being after an illness or rehabilitation measures).
