Abstract

An analysis of the effectiveness of Las Vegas Municipal Court's stress management workshop was conducted. The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory was given to fifty one volunteers prior to and after a stress management workshop. Of the 51, seven participated in a four hour workshop given in two sessions. Those attending the workshop had elevated stress scores after the workshop. Exposure to the symptoms of stress without adequate follow-up on how to treat the symptoms may have led to the unexpected result. It is on the basis of these findings that future workshops concentrate on identifying stress related symptoms as well as learning and practicing stress management techniques.
