Publisher Description

iCope presents an efficient yet comprehensive approach for anyone who wants to learn positive coping skills to manage stress and build resilience. Because stress is linked to the leading causes of death (e.g., heart disease, cancer, accidents, suicide, and cirrhosis of the liver), there are major health reasons to learn to cope with stress more effectively. The methods described in this book are all based on scientific principles established over the past several decades. This book describes what to do on a day-to-day basis to manage stress as well as what steps will improve your overall resilience to any health risks caused by chronic stress. iCope includes self-assessment devices, worksheets, Sidebars on relevant topics, and free internet access to valuable additional resources. This edition also reviews some of the special challenges that Millennials currently face in early adulthood.
