Description

This course begins by teaching you the different ways of coping with stress. You will learn how to develop positive coping strategies and understand why they differ from one individual to the next. You will study autogenic training which is a technique that teaches your body to respond to your verbal commands and learn the difference between adaptive and maladaptive coping strategies as well as problem-focused and emotion-focused coping strategies. In addition, this course will also teach you why images are used in relaxation techniques.

You will then study exercise and DIY strategies helpful in coping with stress.
