The purpose of this course is to help people who have responsibility for, or work closely with, others who are likely to experience levels of anxiety at home which are affecting their work performance or overall quality of life.

Understanding how Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue are constructed and maintained in the home is critical to alleviating many of the symptoms that are seen in the workplace and elsewhere.

Legislation in most countries presumes that employers should expect many of their employees to be facing difficulties and problems at home which may affect their performance at work.

This course is also useful for people who live with or have a close relationship with people who are subjected to high levels of stress in their domestic life. At the end of the course participants will be able to log into additional support and advice for the future.
