Course Overview

Handling Stress at Work – A Guide for Managers (RoSPA Approved)

Stress is recognised as a condition that can affect all types of people, in all kinds of jobs and from all social backgrounds. It is also recognised as a major contributor to behavioural change, psychological dysfunction and serious health problems.
Stress, therefore, has a major effect not only on people’s lives, but also on business profitability and organisational effectiveness.

The causes of stress are many and the solutions are equally diverse. During this course we will examine some of the causes and will also consider effective approaches to stress control and prevention.
