This course will improve your understanding of stress and its effects on health. It will provide an opportunity to understand what stress is, its causes and how it can affect people in various ways. It will enable you to develop an understanding of the different types of stress and how to recognise stress that could have potentially harmful effects. You will explore a range of healthy strategies that can be used to prevent and reduce the effects of stress you may encounter in daily life. Delegates will also gain an understanding of when and how they should seek specialist help if they are or they know of someone who is experiencing significant levels of stress.

As a result of completing this 6 week course, delegates will be able to:

  • Identify what is meant by stress and what are the effects
  • List the possible causes of stress and how to recognise it
  • Identify ways to prevent and reduce the effects of stress

People are impacted by work stress in different ways; personality traits, support structures, personal relationships and other factors affect how employees perceive and respond to work stress.

Job stress also presents problems for employers. Besides suffering from reduced productivity, employers pay in other ways when their employees have stress-related health issues which can lead to both financial and time-related costs when employees have to seek medical care and take extended time off work. The good news is that we can all take steps to manage and mitigate stress. Being aware when we’re experiencing stress – or recognising when it’s affecting someone around us – is important, as it’s the first step towards feeling better.
