Sneak Peak

 

Stop letting stress rule your life and get an understanding of the causes and ways in which you can manage stress in your life.

The Managing Stress short course is a 20 hour course that will guide you and help you understand the many aspects of stress, how it can affect you, your mind and body and help you with some methods to utilise to control stress.

Once stress reaches a certain level, it becomes unhealthy both physically and psychologically. Stressful life events have been known to trigger many psychological problems and disorders, not to mention the physical toll that it can have on your body.

Some topics covered in this course include understanding negative emotions, controlling stress, managing anger, understanding depression and anxiety, how to deal with shame, guilt and self doubt, coping with negative emotions at home and at work and most importantly, achieving balance.

Start today, learn today, learn when you like. You could finish this course in a weekend if you wanted or take a year- it’s up to you.

 

How do our short courses work?

As you progress through each lesson; you will be provided with a range of ways you can expand your learning. By choosing what tasks you do and don't undertake; you can expand in areas that interest you most, and skip areas of less interest.

You won't miss anything important that you need to know about managing stress though; so long as you read the notes that are presented alongside these "learn more" suggestions.

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing.  Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass; you will be able to obtain a "certificate of completion".
