This day will help participants to better understand the psychology of stress – and offer a wide range of practical strategies to minimise stress and increase resilience.


Participants will have:

Developed their understanding as to how they respond to stress. This will include looking at the idea of driver behaviours – including ‘Please Others’ and ‘Be Perfect’.

A range of practical strategies to reduce stress and improve wellbeing, including tools for direct use in the classroom.

Looked at an alternative to the ‘to do’ list by exploring the difference between ‘time management’ and ‘attention management’.

Practised basic mindfulness and have an understanding of the key principles underpinning it.

A greater appreciation of the strengths they bring to their daily work and have celebrated these in a meaningful way Course Leader:
