Accounting for 35% of all work-related illnesses in 2014/15, stress has increasingly become a significant health issue to be addressed among everyone in a working environment. This Stress Management course provides an understanding of how to manage work-related stress, detailing the signs of stress and mental illness and coping mechanisms. The Management Standards Approach – a model that identifies six key areas (Demands, Control, Support, Relationships, Role and Change) of work design that, if not properly managed, are associated with poor health and well-being, lower productivity and increased sickness absence – is described in detail.
The aim of this course is to provide candidates with information on how to manage work-related stress, identify the signs of stress and mental illness, as well as learn about their employer’s roles in managing stress.
