Managing Stress

Ref: C3742613

This course will enable people to understand what stress is and how it affects the mind and body.We will look at how we can improve and develop our coping strategies in order to deal better with upsetting situations and how to develop a “Wise Mind “, using simple techniques including relaxation, mindfulness and visualisation. Learning how to regulate our emotions will be explored with particular emphasis on challenging unhelpful thinking patterns. Communication and interpersonal styles will be discussed together with a five step process called STOPP to help combat distressing situations.
