9780130096869: Stress Management for the Emergency Care Provider

Stress has long been correlated with everything from illness and disease to personality changes, substance abuse, divorce and even death. Over the last forty year, our understanding of stress, its effects on the human condition, and how to manage it, have advanced and improved. Appropriate stress management techniques can help build lives, and inappropriate techniques can damange or destroy lives. Stress Management for the Emergency Care provider examines the phenomena of stress and critical incident stress in the emergency services professions. This book explores the latest in stress management techniques and the discussions and controversies in the literature. It begins with an overview of stress, the stress response, and effective stress management techniques and then highlights the nature of emergency service stress and how those elements can make emergency service workers more vulnerable to the effects of critical incidents. Finally, a special chapter presents an overview of the scientific method and then presents a critical analysis of the literature regarding CISD and emergency service providers.
