Managing Stress In The Workplace

October 5, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another” – William James

“We must have cake. Stress cannot exist in the presence of cake” – David Mamet

The half day course explores the causes of stress and identifies tools and approaches to manage the harmful psychological and physical symptoms that can be so debilitating in the personal and work lives of individuals.

A key element of this course is the use of a personal learning log which allows each individual delegate to develop an approach to managing their own particular circumstances. In addition, the basic underpinnings of the course allows delegates to understand better how to identify and help to manage stress in others.

Course Content

  • Defining stress
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Causes
