Pro-EAP Team

Our Stress Awareness Workshop is customised to the needs of different audiences. Most of the time, this training is targeted at managers, however other employees can benefit from these also.

A stress awareness workshop can help you not just identify behaviours that show stress, it will also help you develop different techniques to prevent and cope with stress.


Understanding Stress

Going through stress in our lives is a common situation that many of us will experience. When our bodies feel overwhelmed or unable to manage a situation, the response is stress.

As Harvard mentioned the combination of reactions to stress is also known as the “fight-or-flight” response because it enables us to react quickly to life-threatening situations, where we will fight the threat or flee to safety. Unfortunately, the body can also react to stressors that are not life-threatening, such as a job interview, work pressure, family difficulties, etc.

Stress has a powerful impact on our lives and when it comes to a common situation it can affect not only our mood, energy level, work, and relationships, stress can also affect and damage our physical health.


What topics are covered in a Stress Awareness Workshop?

Depending on the needs of your organisation, the training can also cover anxiety and stress in the workplace to help better understand and recognise the causes, symptoms and support needed in the workplace. The sessions are designed for anyone who would like a better understanding of mental health conditions for either themselves, a colleague, a family member, or a friend.

If appropriate and relevant the training can also cover Trauma/PTSD.
