  • Managing stress involves the increased self
    awareness of your personal reaction to stress and

  • (Davis,M., Eshelman, E., McKay,M., 2000).

Coping with Stress
  • There are numerous research studies dedicated to
    stress management.
  • Some recommendations have been to review the
    support network, to attend stress management
    workshops, and to develop ones spirituality.
  • (Smith, R., Maroney, K., Nelson, K., Able,
    A., Able, H., 2006).

Stress of being in the Educational System
  • Stressors include finances, careers that are
    currently in place, community issues, family
    issues, and significant relationship issues which
    create barriers to learning and success rates.
  • Stress becomes a constant, and too often a
    destructive, force.
  • Psychological stress can be observed in poor
    concentration, reduced motivation, frustrated
    learning and performance anxiety.
  • Physical stress can include disruptive sleep
    patterns and weaken immune systems.
  • (Smith, R., Maroney, K., Nelson, K., Able,
    A., Able, H., 2006).

  • According to reports from the Center for Disease
    Control and Preventions National Center for

    to the illness. Blonna (2005), Greenberg (2004),
    and Jones and Bright (2001)

  • The professional organizations for counselor
    educators encourage support for reducing effects
    of stress for counselors and counseling students.
    However, masters level counseling programs may
    be lacking in the development of student wellness
    programs (Frame Stevens-Smith, 1995).
  • Frame Stevens-Smith (1995) emphasized the need
    to be concerned about the impairment of the
    student and the impairment of current counselors
    leading to the decreased quality of services to
