The Female Stress Syndrome Survival Guide

Front Cover
HarperCollins, May 17, 2000 - Health & Fitness - 303 pages
The successor to the groundbreaking international classic focuses on the latest findings-including results from Dr. Witkin's own millennial women's health survey-and techniques to help women deal with daily stresses and stressors and move forward with their lives-from one of the nation's authorities on women's stress. In The Female Stress Syndrome, first published in 1983 and last revised in 1991 (over 200,000 copies sold; translated into eleven languages), Dr. Georgia Witkin revealed for the first time how and why women experience stress differently from men. Now, drawing on the latest psychosocial and health findings-including her own survey on the impact of stresses and stressors unique to women-Dr. Witkin proves that although the "female stress syndrome" has not gone away, there is a lot more that can be done to manage it. Witkin describes the three basic tenets of stress management and shows women how to increase their sense of control with proven physical and mental techniques and improved problem-solving skills. Included are chapters on sex, family, teens, males, and much more. Highly readable, thoroughly researched, and spiced with real-life anecdotes, quizzes, checklists, and a "female stress questionnaire," The Female Stress Syndrome Survival Guide helps women of all ages learn how to use stress to get the most out of their personal and professional lives.
