Student stress, coping skills, and school interventions: A literature review

Stress is an unavoidable entity in life. However, students are experiencing stress at heightened levels from a variety of sources. How students deal with the increased stress levels is of utmost importance for schools due to the direct correlation between a student’s ability to manage stress in a positive, productive manner and his or her academic success. The researcher conducted a review of the literature regarding the sources of stress for students, which coping strategies are employed by students, and the types of school-based interventions currently being used by schools as well as the effectiveness of the intervention programs. The results of the research indicated trauma, societal issues, and academic pressures are sources of stress for students while students are coping with the stress in positive manners, such as task and time management and diversions, as well as with negative mechanisms, such as unethical actions and substance abuse. Schools were found to be in a prime position to help students learn positive coping skills in the face of stressful situations; however, the need of mental health services and the amount of services being provided were found to be in contradiction of the other. The literature review found a need for continued research into preventative and intervention programs aimed at assisting students in stress management and mental health services.

Total chromatic number of split graphs

A graph G = (V, E) is called a split graph if there exists a partition V = (I ∪ K) such that the subgraphs of G induced by I and K are empty and complete, recpectively. We will denote such a graph by S(I ∪ K, E). The notion of split graphs was introduced in 1977 by S. Foldes and P.L.Hammer. These graphs have been paid atthention also because they have connection with packing and knapsack problems, with the matroid theory, with Boolean function,... In this paper, some sufficient conditions for split graphs with

to be Type one are proved.

Adult learning psychology & patient education

This paper will establish the psychology of adult learning styles, and their relevance to patient education of the adult and the skill set required to personal health management supported through literature. Necessary patient learning and teaching help the patient identify, define, and understand patient compliance in personal health management and available tools to achieve optimal health management. The influence of the current evolution of health care in the 21st-century involves patient-centered and focused management. To establish a new methodology of health care from disease management to health management through maintenance new philosophies must evolve and provide medical management pathways to achieve desired outcomes. To achieve overall and optimal health management patients must understand health maintenance through supported compliance, action, and individual accountability. Effective patient education in health management accountability achieves better overall patient health and improves quality of life, enjoyment, mobility, sustainability, functional status, quality, and patient longevity. The patient is accountable and in control of personal actions required to achieve optimal medical management in conjunction with the supportive health care environment to manage and maintain individual health. Education provides patients with the skills and tools available to them for optimal health and functioning in a supportive, cost-effective, culturally-supported, and patient-centered program of proactive health care management focus.
