I found the course content very useful and interesting. I was able to relate to my every day work and see areas I can put into practice what I have learnt. The presentation was very comprehensive, kept you interested, and explained well. Not too fast. Very enjoyable, valuable presentation.

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:

  1. How to recognise stress in yourself and others
  2. How to make stress work for you: not against you.
  3. How to manage your mind, body and spirit, to absorb the various stressors and make stress a positive factor, rather than a toxic mix.

About the Course

Because stress can be a stimulant to adaptive change.


  1. Lifting weights is a stressor that induces an increase in strength.
  2. An exam is a stress that induces more studying.
  3. A stress action creates an equal adaptive reaction

So stress is good. - So why the negative press over stress?

Because too much stress can be bad

The inability to handle stress can mean the person is ineffectual even under moderate conditions.

So you should learn how to do three things

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

The course had lots of important information, definitely worthwhile, given me lots to think about. The trainer's presentation was very good, obviously knew his stuff, lots of energy and you left with a good feeling.

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.

  1. Alarm reaction
  2. Adaptation response
  3. Exhaustion

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.


  1. Work stress
  2. Home life stress
  3. Health
  4. 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:

  1. Intensity of the stress
  2. The duration of the stress
  3. 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:

  1. Your psychology
  2. Your physiology
  3. Your environment

Learn about additional solutions to stress management.

  1. How to handle the stressor's that form a part of your work life.
  2. How to handle your physical response during stressful times.
  3. 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?

Summary and personal action plan

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
  6. (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The content was not confusing and once sections were delivered, it was easy to digest but at the same time focused. The trainer's presentation: Well presented, kept the course interesting and people involved were motivated.
