Feeling Stressed? Want to learn better ways to manage your stress?
The Counseling Center has partnered with Dr. Mary Jo Coiro in the Psychology Department to offer a novel approach to stress management in college students. The study will target two key areas related to stress and its impact on health—complex thinking skills known as executive functions and skills for coping with stress. Eligible Loyola undergraduates will be randomly assigned to participate in either a web-based "brain fitness" program, a 6-week skills-based group aimed at teaching ways to cope with stress, or a combination of the brain fitness program and the coping skills group. The study aims to explore the impact of both brain fitness training and skills-based stress management training programs on students’ cognitive functioning, coping, and overall mental and physical health.
