Managing Family Stress


Families can be a great source of support, but they can also be a source of significant stress. Oftentimes we do not have control over situations or circumstances that generate stress, but we do have control over how we respond to the situations and communicate with the people involved. This course on dealing with family stress is designed to help you better cope with family stress. There are 3 lessons within this course that have been adapted from Barlow (2008), Whitson (2012), and Fulton State Hospital (2004).
