For 25 years, I’ve provided brief & time-limited, goal-directed & structured psychotherapies (with individual adults) that are scientifically proven to work. The following are short descriptions of these therapies.
Please ‘share’ this post that I will continue to update with my ‘favorites’ related to stress and its management.
The Science on Stress
Stress, Portrait of a Killer
National Geographic showcases the best stress researchers. (Have patience with a few brief audio glitches)
Neuroscience Connections: Emotion, Memory & Stress
If you’re interested to understand how a stressor (e.g., a move, a divorce, an unexpected car horn) gets under your skin and affects different people differently, then I highly recommend reading this blog post that spotlights Dr. Sternberg’s insights.
The Science on Stress Management
90:10 – The Single Most Important Thing YOU CAN DO For Your Stress
Watch this 10-minute video to learn how cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) applies to stress management. See more ‘healthy viral’ messages at Dr. Mike Evans’s Youtube Channel.
Coping with Stress: Cognitive-Behavioral Stress Reduction
For a much more complete understanding of how we use CBT to manage stress, depression, and pessimism, I recommend this excellent video (1 hour and 19 minutes) provided by Associate Professor Satterfield at the University of California, San Francisco.
Best Research on Preventing & REVERSING Stress-related Diseases
( I recommend subscribing to Dr. Ornish’s newsletter)
BEST Book (and program) on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
I recommend that you read the “Introduction to the Second Edition” of Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat Zinn (free on Amazon, click on ‘Look Inside’ the book). You might also be interested in looking into MBSR classes in your zip code.
