I'm writing a sentence that I believe would sound and read better if there was a verb for it.

The stress management program both decreased additional cardiac events, and made them realise what really causes their stress, and with this, how to cope with their stress.

  • Thanks! I also tried "The stress management program succeeded in both a smaller amount of cardiac events, and helped patients realise and approach the root of their anxiety. " – corybantic Jan 26 '16 at 12:53
