University of Iowa Health Care service appoints new stress management instructor

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Cardiovascular Health, Assessment, Management and Prevention Services (CHAMPS) at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has appointed Larry Barsh as their new stress management instructor.

Barsh is the founder of New Life Counseling for Personal Development in Iowa City. He has been practicing in Iowa City for two years after moving here from Tucson, Ariz., where he was in private practice and also served as a counselor to the state of Arizona, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

For more than 20 years, Barsh has been creating effective techniques and processes to help people reduce and manage stress. He is the developer of the Attitudinal Imaging Process and has worked with major corporations, world-class and professional athletes and thousands of individual clients.

The CHAMPS Stress Management Program works to offer UI Health Care cardiovascular patients productive information and techniques to positively help reduce and manage stress. Managing stress is widely regarded as a significant component in creating greater wellness for cardiac patients as stress is often cited as a recognized contributor to debilitated health.

Barsh's stress management sessions are held every Monday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the UI Hospitals and Clinics. This program is also well suited for people who wish to alleviate stress as part of a disease prevention regimen. UI Health Care staff and personnel are welcome to explore stress management as a prevention component in their lives.
