How do we learn to cope with stress?

Discover powerful ways to manage stress through emotional, cognitive, and physiological responses.

Stress can be viewed as a stimulus, a physiological response and a transaction. Interventions for stress management and adaptation can be determined by how individuals conceptualise their perceptions.

  • identify how stress manifests itself in various diseases
  • define coping, coping theories, different coping styles, strategies and goals
  • discuss interventions that help people cope with stress
  • complete a pass/fail authentic, industry relevant assessment to provide the opportunity to demonstrate learning mastery.
