Course Overview

Not usually visible to the outside observer, work related stress is one of the biggest causes of health problems in the workplace. Like a contagion, if left unchecked stress can have a devastating impact at an individual level or on a business as a whole, so it is crucial that employers and employees alike understand what stress is and the common causes of stress.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, stress is defined as “The reaction people have to excessive demands or pressures, arising when people try to cope with tasks, responsibilities or other types of pressure connected with their job, but find difficulty, strain or worry in doing so."

During this course experienced lecturer Sue Edwards will discuss what triggers can cause stress in professional life and how to establish if these triggers are affecting you. This course will focus on practical solutions to common issues and will help you develop a personal stress management plan which will assist you to achieve more in your professional life.
