Abstract
The basic philosophy of stress management and the establishment of comprehensive programs were discussed. It was emphasized that a good stress management program should receive managerial support throughout the organization in order to create feedback loops for ideas that will be taken seriously by management. The requirements for an ideal worksite stress management program were outlined. It was pointed out that the goals of the programs should be specific, measurable, attainable, and include both individual and organizational benefits. The strategy for obtaining management support was outlined. Several points to be considered in development of a stress management training program were listed and discussed. It was noted that one of the most overlooked aspects of training programs is the need for evaluation once the training has been completed. Instead of simply a question and answer evaluation, the success of a program should be assessed by the impact it has had on the lives of the participants. The assessment process was divided into three levels of response: avoiding or removing stress, coping effectively with stress, and building and protecting health. The author concludes that stress management programs require the assumption of specific responsibilities of both individuals and the organization.
