Coping Strategies Training (half day) £350.00
It is almost impossible to predict how one person will respond to stress and trauma at any particular time. Some people are capable of dealing with tremendous pressure and can even thrive on it. Others, however, will find themselves overwhelmed by apparently trivial developments or changes.
But perhaps the most crucial indicator of how we deal with stress and trauma is the quality of our coping strategies. The more effectively we are able to respond to stress, and minimise the anxiety that comes along with it, the more resilient we
will become in the long term. Our objective is to provide the client with the skills and knowledge that will help them cope effectively in such situations. Both cumulative and acute stress has the capacity to undermine our ability to function in today’s workplace. Trauma can put a stop to everything. The ways we find to cope, however, will have a critical impact on our ability to recover and return to a productive, functioning working life.
