estimated that one in five people experience work-related stress at
some point in their lives, and every year in the UK, there are over
half a million instances where work-related stress results in
people being absent from work.
From a University perspective stress management is not only
about reducing stress in the workplace, but helping staff recognise
stressful situations before they occur.
The following course and resources are provided to staff to help

Stress Control Course
Open to all staff
The six week course starts on 22 October 2015, and is held
on Thursday evenings from 6pm to 8pm on campus (DG125)
The course looks at learning about stress,
managing panic and anxiety, improving sleep, the benefits of
relaxation and exercise and how to control your
thoughts. This is not a group workshop and so
individuals won’t have to talk or disclose any personal information
Anyone interested in attending should contact
us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will arrange for Occupational Health to complete a brief
assessment to ensure that the course will be suitable. The
course is run as a lecture and not as a form of therapy or
interactive workshop. It may not therefore be suitable for
those requiring more of a counselling approach.
If you have any queries, or your staff would
like to speak to someone about the programme please contact myself
or a member of the HR Team.
