Division of Human Resources Lunch and Learn Series: Controlling Stress Before it Controls You

Date: 7/17/2012

Time: 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Location: Nixon Hall 1st Floor Food Lab

Event Description: Stress is often experienced by those who are seeking help from professionals. Stress responses resulting from physical and mental health concerns, family disruptions, life transitions and other life circumstances are common. Stress is unavoidable; it does not have to control us. We will learn about the accumulative effect stress has on us emotionally and physically. We will consider how to better manage stress, apply solution focused techniques to reduce stress and learn how to apply a systematic approach to problem solving. Practical help will be given to better manage stress personally and professionally and to help others do the same! (Presenter: Judi Fischer, M.A., PCC-S; CEUs available upon request).
