Holistic Stress Management
This certification workshop is designed to train health educators with an interest and background in “Holistic Stress Management” to teach, direct or facilitate quality presentations/workshops at their worksite. The focus of this workshop is holistic—honoring the integration, balance and harmony of mind, body spirit and emotions for optimal well-being. The World Heath Organization cites stress as “a global epidemic.” In light of recent events, from international terrorism, Columbine High School, genetic cloning, increases in chronic diseases and everything in between, the words “change” and “stress” are becoming synonymous. It is no secret that people’s coping skills for change are underdeveloped and certainly underutilized. The purpose of this workshop is two-fold: 1) to gain a sound background in holistic approach to stress management, addressing not only the causes of stress through effective coping skills, but the symptoms of stress with effective relaxation techniques, and 2) to refine excellent teaching skills in which to share this knowledge most effectively, whether it is through a one-hour presentation or a 16 week college credit course.
