This study will compare different types of stress-reduction interventions and determine whether a caregiver's preferences for an intervention makes a difference. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of three behavioral intervention groups: audiovisual information on 12 activities (e.g., crossword puzzles, gardening, exercise); biofeedback (using a heart-rate tracking device to learn to change breathing); or resourcefulness training (learning stress management, problem-solving, and help-seeking skills). Using questionnaires, the researchers will measure changes in the caregivers general physical and mental health, risk behaviors, resourcefulness, perceived stress, and mood at the start of the study, at six months, and at one year. Some participants will also be asked to keep a journal to record their experiences.
