The article discusses the results of a research paper published in a 2008 issue of the "Journal of Occupational Health Psychology," by Katherine Richardson and Hannah Rothstein, titled "Effects of occupational stress management intervention programs: A meta-analysis." The paper analyzed and compared 36 prior studies of stress management programs. The results indicated that cognitive-behavioral (C-B) approaches were more effective than relaxation training, and that C-B methods were most effective when they were not combined with any other techniques.
