Course Outline

Week One: What is Stress?

The first week explores the main signs of stress, the vicious circles that keep it alive and how Stress Control works. You will receive a workbook of information and resources and we encourage you to practice and apply your learning between classes.

Week Two: Controlling your Body

This session, we begin to tackle stress, by exploring how the body reacts to it and how breathing retraining, exercise, and progressive relaxation can help.

Week Three: Controlling your Thoughts

This session explores how stress affects your thoughts, and teaches ways to ‘think your way out of stress’.

Week Four: Controlling your Actions

This session looks at how our actions can feed stress, and explores ways to face your fears using ‘Problem Solving’ and ‘Getting out of the Safety Zone’.

Week Five: Controlling your Panic, Stress Prevention, and Medication

Panicky feelings are part and parcel of stress. This session helps you to better understand them, why they happen, and ways to manage them. We will also look at some of the medications used for stress and answer some of the common questions about how they work.

Week Six: Controlling your Sleep, Managing your Wellbeing and Looking to the Future

Poor sleep is often a result of stress. In this session, we will look at skills to help you get a good night’s sleep, and the ways you can stay on top of stress following this course.
