Oping with Stress (SLP) Module 3 (BHS400) Stress Management

Search the Trident Library and professional Web sites to find sources from which you can develop your educational program on a topic related to stress management.

The sources should be sources of facts, data, and theoretical material relevant to your topic area. At least one or two sources must address the planning, development, and presentation of health-related educational programs.

Please prepare an annotated bibliography (not an essay) of 5 scholarly articles and/or professional resources. Include a summary of what each resource will provide that will be relevant and helpful for formulation and development of your program.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1) Your ability to prepare an annotated bibliography and use scolarly and/or professional sources.

2) Your ability to apply knowledge about the effects of stress and the benefits of good stress management that you have gained in this course to an educational program for a target audience in the health care professionals. Explain why the sources youve selected will help you achieve your learning and behavioral objectives for this audience.

One helpful resource is The Community Toolbox owl/resource/614/01/

ASSIGNMENT EXPECTATIONS: Please read before completing assignments.

Assignment should be approximately 2 pages in length (double-spaced).
Please use major sections corresponding to the major points of the assignment, and where appropriate use sub-sections (with headings).
Remember to write in an academic manner (avoid using the first person except when describing a relevant personal experience if asked in the assignment).
The focus of these assignments is on independent thinking and critical analysis. Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. Cite references for all facts and ideas that are not common knowledge.
When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be properly cited. This means that material copied verbatim must be enclosed in quotes and the reference should be cited either within the text or with a footnote. Quotations should be very rarely used. I cannot evaluate what you have learned if you copy someone elses words.
Use of peer-reviewed articles is required. Websites must be professional sources, not consumer sources (i.e. find government or university sites, or nonprofit organizations sites).
Be sure to cite your references within the text of all papers and on the reference list at the end. For examples, look at the way the references are listed within the modules and on the background reading list.
Proofread your paper to be sure grammar and punctuation are correct, and that each part of the assignment has been answered clearly.
