One nation under stress
BF575.S75O53 2005
Streaming Rights =
Stress is everywhere--at home and on the job, on the farm and in the city, in the executive suite, the steno pool, the classroom, and on the production line; and it is being increasingly implicated in immune system dysfunction, cancer, hypertension, heart disease, ulcers, and a host of other illnesses. This program seeks to help viewers understand what causes stress, explain its consequences, and demonstrate ways in which stress can be turned into a positive force. Hosted by Merlin Olsen, the program emphasizes that stress is a different variable for everyone and shows different ways in which people are coping with it, citing the English philosopher Bertrand Russell: "It is not the experience that happens to you, it is what you do with the experience that happens to you."--Container.
