This stress management course covers common causes of stress and guides you through different methods of destressing. First, you will learn how stress can affect many people in different ways and can have a number of important effects on the immune system. The course then explains disorders that can be caused by stress and the symptoms to look out for, both in yourself and others. This will help you with stress prevention.
This course will discuss which of the different parts of the brain get triggered by stress in different ways, and how to cope with these situations. The role of the endocrine system during a stressful period as well as the difference between stress and anxiety will be discussed. You will then learn how to use adaptive and maladaptive coping strategies as well as problem-focused and emotion-focused coping strategies in different stressful situations.
Finally, the course will teach you about assertiveness and how to assess your own personality type for stress management purposes. You will then learn why and how images are used in relaxation techniques. Implementing these relaxation techniques to cope with stress will greatly improve your day-to-day life, or allow you to assist a friend in need. That’s not bad for a free course. So start the course today, and be prepared the next time stress enters your life.
