Stress Containment Through Meditation

ByGilbeart H. Collings, Jr.

After demonstrating the effectiveness of meditation training for stress reduction in an occupational setting, the Medical Department at New York Telephone adopted a semi-automated training program in this technique as part of the company's regular Employee Health Maintenance Program. The meditation program has expanded to company branches in various locations throughout the state of New York and is presently available to all employees within the company who, in the opinion of the medical staff, are suffering from stress and are suitable candidates for meditation training.
