Stress Management in the Workplace

Explore the science behind stress, what it means for you and others in workplace settings, and learn how to differentiate myth from fact in handling stress for better work performance.

Develop strategies that work to proactively manage stress, understand how stress isn’t always caused by the events that happen in your life, and find out how to change the way your body reacts to stress. This course has been developed by the Faculty of Extension in partnership with Susan Sawatzky from In-Scope Solutions.
