Stress Spikes as Economy Tanks - Psychologist Identifies Why Traditional 'Stress Management' Techniques Don't Work, and Offers Radical New Approach
Date:11/12/2008

HOUSTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- As the stock market hits record lows, the nation's stress level hits record highs, but despite a number of articles and books on managing stress, people report being more stressed than ever. In his latest book, Life from the Top of the Mind, psychologist Bill Crawford, Ph.D., identifies why advice such as, "don't worry, just stay calm," not only doesn't help, but actually can make the problem worse.

To make this new approach available to as many people as possible, Dr. Crawford travels extensively, speaking at professional conferences and conducting corporate trainings nationwide. For example, he is in constant demand in the healthcare industry where stress and conflict not only reduce productivity, but can actually cost lives. In this environment, his unique approach has helped professionals shift from the "resistant brain," where blame and resentment abound, to the more intelligent, purposeful "Top of the Mind," where they can access their medical knowledge and problem-solving skills.

Further, he has created trainings based upon this new approach for professionals in energy, banking, hospitality, pharmaceuticals, education, and more, where participants report that because they can now influence the way thei
