And if you know that, what do you do about your stressors? Do you have coping strategies?  Is there anything you need to put in place so that you can effectively combat your daily stress? All are burning questions so that you can avoid burn out. During this one-hour long workshop we will introduce you to the core knowledge of stress management as seen by health psychologists. In addition, you will also gain a deeper insight into your own typical stress management skills.
