Coping with Stress at University comprehensively covers the main problems and stresses that a student may experience during their university career. Looking at university life from a variety of angles, this book equips the student to be able to deal with stressful situations ranging from exam pressure to relationship problems, from homesickness to managing finances. Although the problems do not change, the way a student faces them can and the more effective the approach, the less stress the student will feel when tackling their concerns. Quotes and case studies from previous students illustrate how problems have been dealt with in the past, and a number of coping techniques and exercises are provided to help prepare students for the transition into and through university life. Coping with Stress at University is an invaluable introduction to university life for any potential or current student, and it also acts as a helpful resource for parents and friends wishing to gain a greater understanding of the issues faced at university.

...Join the author on this narrative and inspiring tour of principal Ogilvy's daily encounter with stress. His assistants, Ms Noodle and Mr Bishop, are astounded by the daily rigors and stress which they also endure mainly as a result of Ogilvy's leadership style, and in some cases situations that they unknowingly create. Their ability to lead was challenged by daily encounters with a faculty that was resistant to change. In response to a growing number of complaints from staff, parents, and at times the leadership team, the assistant superintendent finally scheduled stress management training for Ogilvy and his assistants. Ogilvy's leadership team was not pleased. Their perception of stress management training as being a 'touchy-feely' session was quickly changed when they met a facilitator who led them through a path of self discovery and awareness which forever changed the manner in which they led. They gained knowledge of stressors which resided in the school's culture; theoretical and practical approaches to addressing these stressors; and learned coping strategies which guided them in leading change in a dynamic manner. Eventually Manchester Elementary transformed into being a healthy learning environment conducive to student achievement, and a place that the entire faculty and staff enjoyed working.
