Everyone experiences stress from time to time. It can be brought on by any number of factors. It is a natural reaction to many situations in life including work, family, relationships and money. Some stress can be positive because short periods of stress have been proven to make you more alert and increase your performance levels. However, work-related stress is a significant issue, with millions of working days being lost each year as a result of stress, anxiety and depression.

The course will help you to understand what stress is, the common stressors and causes and the various strategies to manage work-related stress. The course covers the importance of personal resilience and how this can help you to cope with stress, and finally will help you learn the steps to carry out a risk assessment for work-related stress.
