What is Stress Management Training?
Some stress is good is good for you; but too much stress is bad for you. The inability to manage stress can mean you may become sick: you may feel overwhelmed even under moderate stress conditions.
You need to know how to do three things:
- How to recognise stress in yourself and others
- How to make stress work for you: not against you.
- How to manage your mind, body and spirit, to absorb the various stressors and make stress a positive factor, rather than a toxic mix.

- How to make stress work for you: as a stimulant to adaptive change.
- How to avoid an overexposure to negative stress.
- How to manage your mind, body and spirit, to absorb the various stressors and make stress a tonic, rather than a toxic mix.

Stress Management Training Course Content
Learn the definition of stress:
A stress is a mental, emotional or material event that triggers an adaptive response in a person.
Learn about the "The General Adaptation Syndrome"
"The General Adaptation Syndrome” is the theory that underpins the whole science of stress management.
The general adaptation syndrome is a three part model that explains the body’s reaction to a stressor.
- Alarm reaction
- Adaptation response
Learn about the "The total load" principle
Total load is the measure of all the stressors, from all realms of your life, which are acting on you at any given moment.
- Work stress
- Home life stress
- Relationships etc.
You need to take account of the fact that you are an integrated being: not able to totally separate your life’s compartments. I.e. work stress is likely to affect home life, and vice versa.
Learn about the "The optimum zone" principle
The optimum zone is the target zone.
The optimum zone is the level of stress that allows you to work at your greatest efficiency because you are balancing the:
- Intensity of the stress
- The duration of the stress
- The frequency of the stress
Understand the "The optimum zone" and you will have one of the solutions to the stress management problem.
Learn about "The Recovery ability
Your recovery ability is a measure of your resilience to stress.
Recovery ability is made up of three parts:
- Your psychology
- Your physiology
- Your environment
Learn about additional solutions to stress management.
- How to handle the stressor's that form a part of your work life.
- How to handle your physical response during stressful times.
- How to handle your emotional response during stressful times.
How can you manage things so that stress works for the team as a stimulant to greater productivity?
