PREVENTING AND MANAGING STRESS
Some of the top minds on the subject of stress from Stanford University were involved in putting this program together. They tell us about the causes of stress and proven ways to lessen its negative impacts. And they tell us that in small amounts, stress can help focus attention and improve performance. But too much stress, too often, can hinder performance and damage health. Stress can undermine any organization's bottom line by increasing absenteeism and decreasing productivity.
Viewers learn about some unexpected symptoms of chronic stress and the dangers involved with them. They are also told how to recognize the difference between good stress and bad stress. Three techniques to manage stress (avoidance, short-circuiting, mitigation) are explained and demonstrated.
This program is part of the STANFORD HEALTH SERIES - the other two programs in the series are: Preventing and Managing Computer-Related Injuries and Preventing and Managing Back Pain.
