How to get stress management training course materials that will save you time

Great content is the cornerstone of any stress management training course.

However, creating highly relevant content ain’t easy. It takes time and can be costly to produce.

So if you’ve landed here, there is a good chance that you have a group that needs to learn about stress management. The good news is that we can provide you with the downloadable pre-written and customizable training materials that you’ll need.

Not only will you get the content to deliver the course yourself, but you’ll also can add your own logos and deliver the content as your own.

Be mindful of what your participants need to know

All too often, course developers lose sight of what their audience actually want to know.

This may seem obvious, but it’s essential that your audience feels that the content will meet their needs. Anything less and they’ll just not be happy. In fact, you may be surprised to learn on how important it is to offer a consistent experience.

In many ways, when your audience experiences each part of the course, they should always feel that it is relevant to them and that they are constantly learning something practical.

And, if you don’t attend to this, you may be missing out.

As a starting point, you can re-use this training material to improve your audiences understanding of stress management at work. This will immediately make the course relevant to staff at all levels in a company (e.g., managers, team leaders, supervisors and frontline staff).

One of the best ways to encourage your audience, is to just follow the content provided and to share how to manage stress. From that point, you will be able to explore various support initiatives that can be introduced to help reduce the challenges of stress within the workplace.

Your audience will simply want more examples that will help them in their lives. And it’s easy to see why.

So, it’s very possible that your audience will look for you to share personal experiences or reflections. More than anything, it is a most effective way to share your own knowledge, thoughts and comfort with the topic.

Course outline

The following topics are covered within the slides, manuals and support materials provided.

Stress and the workplace – For best results, use the content to examine how stress can impact on the workplace. This impact includes reduced performance levels and higher absenteeism and turnover figures. Then, explore how lower motivation levels can have a direct impact on satisfaction levels amongst staff. Plus, how stress levels can result in burnout for some staff.

Factors – In this section, explore what factors can influence stress levels both at an individual and at a company level. For increased audience awareness you can highlight the impact of working conditions, work overload and responsibility. When you make the content relevant, it makes it easier for you to discuss how interpersonal demands, relationships and profiles can cause obstacles and lead to stress. Finally, use the content to highlight key contributory factors like role ambiguity and role conflict. Once everyone in your audience reaches this point, you can use the content to discuss the impact of personality type on stress levels.

The General Adaptation Syndrome – So what’s the easiest way to discuss the impact of stress on an individual? Well, there have been numerous approaches, we believe that the General Adaptation Syndrome is by far the easiest to convey. During this part of the course, you can use the content to explore this theory and provide particular focus on physical and behavioural symptoms that can exist.

Managing stress – Every member of your audience will be interested in how they can manage stress. It’s important for your audience to see for themselves the different stages of stress and how it can be managed. This section examines the role of management and the individual on managing stress. That way, your audience will start to build a better picture of what will work well and what doesn’t work for them.

Support programs – Surprisingly, few companies are investing enough time and resources into support programs. End this course by exploring support programs that can be introduced to help to manage stress levels with organizations. Once your audience know that they can improve their situation, and what types of programs exist, it’s an opportunity for you to examine employee counselling, communication forums and listening skills. Then, tt’s all about discussing the role of management, stress reduction teams and company event planning. Next, you can explore personal coping strategies, anxiety management and cognitive restructuring. And, conclude by discussing appraisal, problem and emotion focused coping strategies.
