Training objectives and advantages
Goal: to expose students to new aides in stress management and to study corresponding practical skills.
Objectives:
− Critical analysis of widely used beliefs with respect to the stress phenomena;
− Evaluation of the control action zones – what could be resolved in a short format, and what should be treated differently;
− Choice and study of practical tools in the control action zone.

Training program
Stress is widely used to name and explain almost any difficult situation – as a result, the word “stress” has long lost its once clear meaning.
- The good old stress as a general adaptation syndrome – for what Hans Selye was awarded the Nobel Prize. A short overview of the signs of desirable and destructive stress and of the relationships between physiology, psychology and philosophy.
- Various approaches to controlling stress at various levels of the bio-psycho-social system.
The need of systemic approach to cope with organizational stress.
- Levels of the “stress control ladder” – from the tools of quick self assistance to reconsidering goals and values. Tools and techniques for working with stress at four levels (behavioral, cognitive, emotional, and value-oriented.)
- Case studies, analysis of individual stress coping strategies.
- Additional factors influencing overall stress resilience (traumatic experience, crises of personal and professional development, nature of organizational change, the level of uncertainty in macrosystems.)
- Stress, coping, and culture – what impedes effective stress management.
During the training course the instructor will use most recent research development in the area of chronic organizational stress – the instructor was one of keynote speakers at the 1st IAGP (The International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes) research conference, devoted to group processes in coping with chronic stress.
