The more you try to avoid or resist stress, the stronger and more harmful experiencing stress can become. Individuals who choose to view stress as potentially positive and helpful show none of the negative physical and psychological effects typically associated with ongoing exposure to high levels of stress. Changing your mindset about stress is the first step towards developing STRESS RESILIENCE: the capacity to actually benefit and grow from stress.
The Benefits of Stress is a research based training program that will help you identify and strengthen skills and tools you can use to reduce the harmful effects of stress and to make your life more enjoyable and fulfilling.
The Benefits of Stress training curriculum can be provided at your location and adjusted in length, from three to six hours, to suit the specific needs of your organization. In addition, this training qualifies as professional continuing education credits for mental health and chemical dependency professionals.
