This course gives participants a choice of tools and techniques they can use to focus on the things in their lives that can minimise the risk of stress and enhance their feelings of wellbeing.

Who Is This Training Course For?

Any staff member within an organisation would benefit from Stress Management Techniques. As stress is subjective, people need to observe and learn a variety of strategies to enable them to select those that will work best for them.
