There is no such thing as a stress free life. We all experience it, whether it be worrying about making a presentation, planning a celebration meal or preparing for a test.  If we allow it, stress can be a negative influence in our lives but, with better recognition of the condition, it is less likely to negatively impact our sense of wellbeing.

This Stress Awareness online course looks at the causes of stress, the effects of stress and ways of controlling and resolving stress, both in the workplace and at home.



9.9 million working days were lost in the UK in 2014/15 due to one thing: work-related stress. This means that – for one year – stress in the workplace cost the UK economy nearly £5.5 billion. Is your organisation doing enough to tackle the problem?

Work-related stress develops when an employee is unable to cope with the pressures being placed on them at work.  There are many ‘triggers’ including a sizeable workload, lack of flexibility, hostile working environment and lack of support.  Taking control will help reduce employee work related stress.

This Stress Awareness online course, defines the terms ‘pressure’ and ‘stress’ and explains the difference in acute and chronic stress conditions.  Users will learn what the main causes of stress are, but these may be a subjective experience and what one person finds stressful, another may not.  Additionally,  the course explains how the reactions we have to stressful situations are affected by our personalities, our physical, intellectual and emotional abilities and our view of the stressor.

The symptoms of stress is discussed in this training module which can be a combination of physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural responses.  Also, this Stress Essentials online course highlights how the effects of stress are linked to the development of specific disorders and health problems.

Furthermore, the course introduces stress busting techniques that help to reduce the build up of daily stress.  Users will learn that it is important to take personal responsibility for managing their personal stress levels and where they can find help and advice.
