II. There are two ways to teach this section.
Method #1 Generate the list of stressful things (see II.B.) and, as you generate the list, have people give examples of what they mean. For instance, one driver may have a bus with some particular maintenance problem that is stressful for her. Another driver might be especially irked by stop-arm violators.
Method #2 Use Sections D. through L. to guide a discussion with the group about what problems Tom and Harry encountered. Either way, be careful to not let this become a gripe session.
II.B. Ask the question and record responses on the flipchart. If you are using Method #2 above, make sure that the following are included on the list:
II.M. With the group, make a list of the ways people behave when they are under a lot of stress. Donít spend too much time on this. The list should include the following:
- Feel tired, sick, run down
- Have headaches
- Abuse alcohol and/or other drugs
- Smoke more
- Have poor control of emotions (anger, sadness, irritability)
- Feel confused, depressed, tense
- Have changes in sleeping and eating habits
- Feel negative
- Canít concentrate.
