The aim of this training is to improve participant’s stress management and make individual’s more resilient. Participants will develop greater awareness of stress and gain personal stress management abilities through; clarifying the personal meaning of stress, identifying personal sources of stress, becoming aware of personal coping strategies and developing new coping strategies. The course will help participants to be aware of the differences between pressure and stress, be better equipped to recognise and manage the symptoms of stress and develop effective stress management techniques. In turn this will support individual’s in building resilience, managing their stress levels, adapting to change and improve their personal mental health and wellbeing.
In all previous jobs stress has been something to ignore. This course switched a light on for me as it validated that stress is a real issue if not handled correctly and moreover, bad stress can be avoided
