Stress Awareness - How to minimise stress caused by Welfare Reform

Would you like to:

  • Understand why you get stressed?
  • Know what the likely triggers and causes of stress are?
  • Appreciate the effect stress has on you, both physically and mentally?
  • Obtain some simple techniques to help you combat and reduce stress?


Stress is widely recognised as both an illness in its own right and a symptom of the lifestyle the majority of individuals feel compelled to follow. Significant numbers of people are experiencing stress in either their working or personal lives. Obviously our lives are not neatly compartmentalised so stress in any area of our life will impact all other areas.

The numbers vary, but it is widely acknowledged that stress has an adverse effect on both individuals and organisations, with depression and anxiety being the most common stress related ailments seen by GPs, affecting approximately 20% of the UK working population. 1 in 7 people in the UK say they find their work either very or extremely stressful and the effects of Welfare Reform mean that this figure will increase, in the housing world. 

This 1 day, interactive course will help you and your staff understand the effects stress has on the body and mind, in addition to understanding the common triggers and causes that give rise to what we commonly term "stress"

Prevention is always preferable to cure, so the workshop will enable you to detect early signs of stress in yourself and others. In addition, the course will give you a number of easy to use techniques that will enable you to reduce the effects of stress and minimise the impact of potential stressful situations.
