6 Continuing Education hours (lunch included in cost)
Description: Today’s world has unprecedented demands on the individual as the turbulent world situation affects growing numbers of people. As pressure on people increase, stress levels increase also. While unacknowledged and unrecognized stress has a negative effect on the human being and their work, stress education can reduce this effect. This workshop is intended to provide you with information you can use to prevent deteriorating health and work performance that may lead to developing burnout.
Stress is like the weather, inevitable. We cannot control the weather, but we can make choices about how to protect ourselves from the elements. This class is designed to provide information, discussion and guided exercises about the nature, signs and symptoms of stress, as well as knowledge and practice of specific stress management techniques.
