Clearly, developments in the clinical care of people affected by stress issues, and knowledge gleaned from that – which provides new insight into the prevention of absenteeism and presenteeism relating to stress – has to reach business managers at all levels. If it doesn’t, new understanding is nothing more than academic.

The National institutes, which are a collection of non-profit making organisations, takes as a major priority, the dissemination of these state-of-the-art findings regarding Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue to senior management (including board members) and line managers.

If senior managment in your organisation is unaware that, for instance, the case of anyone giving stress as a reason for absence can be resolved in less than twelve weeks, this is a course that will provide very considerable enlightenment.

Rationale and aims

Methods for dealing effectively with people affected by stress issues have changed out of all recognition in the past ten years but researchers and clinicians have been relatively slow to broadcast this information to business managers. Line managers, middle management and senior managers represent the largest group of working people who come to stress practitioners for advice and support. Whether we are considering the health and wellbeing of business managers themselves or those with whom they interact in their working lives – and when they go home – it is vital that The National institutes, Registered Stress Practitioners and associated health professionals, form effective and creative working relationships with business managers. The often-difficult positions in which business managers find themselves (over 60% who speak with us say they are often stuck between a seemingly-unmovable set of attitudes from senior management and a quite different set of values in other parts of their organisation) are documented and appreciated by us and this course endeavours to demonstrate the support and advice that is available.

The National institutes believe that, where Job-stress is declared, no case should continue unresolved for more than 12 weeks after a programme of clinical care is instigated.

Subjects to be covered on the course

Defining a clear role for the business managers in cases where stress is an issue
Causes and manifestations of stress and understanding how different attitudes to mental wellbeing in organisations can be addressed
The different stages of stress
Effective stress-reducing progammes for employees and identifying stress-related absence where stress is not declared as an issue
Teaching management that addressing stress effectively is the single most successful way to reduce absenteeism statistics
Using tools and techniques to monitor and manage stress, and managing domestic stress that overlaps with work
Beliefs that contribute to Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue at work

Teaching Methods

This is an informal, but professionally informative, attendance course that includes lecturing and discussion. Class time is divided between lecturing and group discussion, with questions and interactive participation encouraged at all times. Independent study consists of background reading and maintenance of a reflective diary.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course successful participants will have a basic understanding of:

Why humans feel stressed and how to differentiate between the different stages of stress
How to find advice and support for a wide variety of cases where most business managers tend to believe they are less successful than they could be
How to work towards an ethically-sound result in stress cases whilst retaining the support of senior management, peers and those for whom you are responsible 
How to effectively develop the goals for programmes that will radically reduce average rates of absenteeism and presenteeism
How to measure increased productivity due to decreased levels of Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue
How to resolve cases where an employee has been absent for 12 weeks or more and stress is declared as a significant contributory factor

Creditable towards:

All Registered Stress Practitioner (Vocational) and (Professional) programmes; Nicrs programmes if postcourse reflective exercise successfully completed.
