Stress management is often conceptualized as a variety of techniques that are utilized to develop or improve coping skills for dealing with psychological stress. “Stress,” in general, refers to an individual’s physiological response to an external event that sets off the “fight-or-flight” reaction. Chronic stress has not only been known to produce significant mental and emotional pain, but to also lead to impairment in marital/relationship functioning, school/work performance, family functioning, mental/sleep disorders and weight gain, among other important areas of life.
