Stress Management

Overview 

This course looks at how stress, change, uncertainty and triggers affect all of our lives. We will learn about how we respond to stress and practise techniques for changing those responses to help build resilience. We will look at positive psychology and how thriving in the face of adversity is a skill that can be learned, and how choosing healthy coping strategies can build resilience regardless of our circumstances.

  • Develop skills to build a resilience toolkit for yourself and others.
