Managing Workplace and Personal Stress
Duration: 2 Days
This workshop is designed to increase participants' self-awareness in terms of the nature of stress, its causes and effects and their own responses when experiencing stress. It teaches them a variety of practical cognitive and behavioural techniques to help them cope with stress in ways that do not compromise their emotional and physical health. Participants are encouraged to recognise "early warning signs of stress" and to address them before they have a significant impact on their health.
By acquiring effective stress management skills participants will find that they will be happier, healthier and more efficient and effective in what they do both at work and at home.

This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of stress as well as tailored techniques to combat stress reactions. The Centre for Corporate Health uses the Human Synergistics' Stress Processing Report (SPR) to address stress. This inventory is one of the latest diagnostic tools available to measure stress. The SPR creates awareness of the specific thinking patterns or "styles" that leads to effective and ineffective behaviour. Using the SPR, participants can modify their reactions to stress, to achieve the greatest possible performance and personal gains.
The SPR is a personalised, confidential assessment tool that focuses on the relationship between an individual's thinking patterns, health and performance effectiveness. By pinpointing ineffective thinking styles that can lead to physical stress symptoms, the SPR enables participants to identify the "early warning signs" that indicates problems before they begin to have a significant impact on their lives.
By plotting their SPR scores on a circular graph, participants generate a picture of their current ability to cope with stressors. Close examination of this "profile" reveals specific areas of strength (stress insulators) as well as areas of difficulty (stress conductors). Once the areas that require specific attention have been identified, participants, in conjunction with the facilitator, develop personalised plans of action for changing their thinking and behaviour.
