Chapter 2. Learning To Manage Stress > Case Study #1 Maria Copes With Stress

Case Study #1 Maria Copes With Stress

Maria is a divorcee who is raising two young children while also working full-time as a legal secretary in a well-known law firm. Following her divorce, Maria went back to school to acquire skills for a job that would pay enough to support herself and her children.

Maria’s daily routine seems increasingly overwhelming. She gets up at 5:30 a.m. to prepare breakfast, make lunches and do laundry, so clean clothes are available for the family. At 7:30 she drops Jose, age 2, at the babysitter and takes daughter Carla, age 7, to school. (Carla’s school is 10 miles in the opposite direction from where Maria works.)
