The Health & Safety Executive in the United Kingdom, stakeholders in these courses, believe that Excess-stress and Post slow-stress fatigue are responsible for more absence from work than any other reason.

So if you find your work particularly stressful, you’re in good company, but good company you needn’t be in at all. Our understanding of stress has undergone fundamental revision in the past decade – largely because some key similarities between trauma and what we now call ‘slow-stress’ have been recognised.

Stress can be a good thing but it can, suddenly and without warning, reach levels that are very difficult to control.

Understanding the prehistoric origins of, and reasons for, stress and then looking anew at the ways that it develops at work will give you the insight you need to gain the upper-hand – and to guide others.

This course can also be taken over 2 days with personal guidance and advice from Registered Stress Practitioners given to you in confidential sessions – or as a 3-day break with everything on the 2-day, plus the material in GC1108: Reducing my Stress at Home.

Principle learning method Face-to-face teaching and group discussion with a post-course exercise in which the reasons for your improved abilities are reviewed and highlighted
