Learning outcomes

  • develop strategies for monitoring stress and alleviating its effects
  • become more organised to reduce stress

The format

While you will be able to see and hear the tutors, you will not be visible or audible to them or each other. Nobody will know if you’re eating mince pies! However, you will be able to ask questions, see the questions that others ask and make comments.

The format for this session is approximately 1hr of presentation-style teaching interspersed with questions and answers from participants. We will round up the with a Q & A session. Depending on how many questions are asked, the session may run longer than 1hr so please set aside 1hr 15mins if you want to stay to participate in the Q & A at the end.

Tutors: David Thomas and Frances Dredge
