Stress in America by the APA with updates for 2019
This extensive course is based upon the key findings of several surveys conducted by the APA and can be found on the APA website (see links below).
According to the APA — “Since 2006, the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Stress in America™ survey has examined sources of stress and its impact on the health and wellbeing of Americans living in the United States. Since that first survey, overall stress levels have gradually decreased for Americans, with results from our August 2016 poll showing the lowest overall reported stress level in 10 years. However, an additional poll conducted in early January 2017 shows more Americans reporting symptoms of stress and citing personal safety and terrorism as sources of stress.”
The articles are well written, but full of facts and numbers. They are both detailed and in depth. This course is an excellent reference for nurses, psychologists, social workers and other the mental health professionals who do any kind of clinical work as stress impacts nearly every client.
Clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, psychologists, professional counselors, drug counselor, and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course on stress and its impact on Americans. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge of and clinical skills with stress and its related effects.
