American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

Stress in­oc­u­la­tion train­ing (SIT) has been used suc­cess­fully to pre­pare those about to en­ter highly stress­ful sit­u­a­tions—such as the mil­i­tary, law en­force­ment and other high-risk oc­cu­pa­tions— for the pres­sures they will in­evitably face.

By be­ing ex­posed to var­i­ous types of chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions, de­vel­op­ing and mas­ter­ing skills to man­age the stress, and con­tin­ued ap­pli­ca­tion and prac­tice of the tech­niques de­vel­oped, peo­ple are able to man­age their fears so they can per­form at nec­es­sary lev­els when they’re en­coun­tered in the work­place and else­where.

There have been a num­ber of stud­ies con­ducted that also eval­u­ated the ben­e­fits of this ap­proach in ar­eas such as fear of fly­ing, en­roll­ment in law school and ath­letes’ anx­i­eties.
