 Altering Your Responses to Stressful Situations

Location:  Hammer Health Science Building - Room LL-201

Your boss gives you an emergency assignment late Friday afternoon.  You find out that your loved one may need surgery.  Your teenager says something hurtful to you.  The temptation in each of these situations may be to respond without thinking, letting your emotions take control.  But that's often the worst thing to do.  This seminar demonstrates effective ways to manage emotions even in the most stressful of situations.

Following this seminar, participants will be better able to:

  • Assess their current ability to effectively cope with stress
  • Recognize some of the factors that contribute to susceptibility to strong negative reactions to stress
  • Utilize techniques to develop "stress hardiness"
