||The influence of a healthy lifestyle program in a work environment: A controlled long-term study
||Apr. 1996, Vol.12, No.2, p.193-206. Illus. 31 ref.
||A group of university staff participated in a six-week health education programme designed to teach participants the skills needed to self-manage stress. Physical and psychological health assessments were carried out before the programme, on completion of the programme, and again two years later. Compared to a non-participating control group, the treatment group showed significant improvements immediately following the intervention. However, two years after, differences between the two groups were small. While direct intervention can be of great benefit to the individual in the short term, these benefits tend to disappear over time if contact is not maintained.
