The course provides practical stress management techniques to help prevent and deal with stress in our professional and personal lives. It introduces a working definition of stress, and differentiates between positive ‘pressure’ (or challenge) and the negative impact stress can have. It identifies the sources of stress, which can very often be determined by our outlook/perceptions. It looks at the four response areas – physical, mental, emotional and behavioural – and how we can respond in each area. It explores the relationship between thinking, feeling and behaving, and briefly examines where some of our unhelpful thinking may come from. It provides practical strategies for preventing and dealing with stress, and the opportunity to complete a personal stress prevention plan.
In addition to tutor input, there are activities, exercises and a good deal of delegate participation.
