Stress Spikes as Economy Tanks - Psychologist Identifies Why Traditional 'Stress Management' Techniques Don't Work, and Offers Radical New Approach

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.

This problem is explained by new information on the nature of stress and how the brain processes information. For example, contrary to popular opinion, stress is not what something "does to us," i.e, "work stresses me out." What we now know is that stress is a chemical change in the body triggered by a very specific part of the brain.

To address this problem, psychologist Dr. Bill Crawford has created a model that allows one to change the chemical make-up of the body and shift to the upper 80% of the brain when stressed, and a second model that allows individuals to stay in this upper 80% (what Dr. Crawford calls the "Top of the Mind") and bring more clarity, confidence, and creativity to life.

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 their brain processes information, they can regain control of their lives without first needing to change the world around them.

NOTE TO THE EDITOR: As an interview subject, Dr. Crawford explains this new approach using humor, common language, and common sense. In fact, audience members around the country constantly refer to him as the "Steve Martin of Psychologists." We believe your listeners or readers, especially those who feel overwhelmed by all of the stress in their lives, will find this new information to be extremely valuable because it gives them a way to regain control in an out-of-control world.
