ACTIVE RELAXATION TRAINING FOR FATIGUE AND STRESS MANAGEMENT
An approach to developing health
INSTRUCTORS: Kit Malia & Anne Brannagan
'Stress appears to play an important role in determining whether people undertake and maintain potentially important health-related behavior changes. People who are stressed do not change their behaviour, or maintain the changes if they are made'.
'Two major sources of stress in a year make a person age sixteen years. In fact, an annus horribilis including three very serious events could increase the body's age by . . . thirty-two years, over the subsequent twelve months'.
This practical 2 hour webcast is suitable for professionals working with individuals who have health problems made worse by stress and/or fatigue issues.
The course will provide an overview of what Active Relaxation is, teach you about 14 techniques you can use, provide a tested practical model to implement with your clients/patients, and demonstrate the latest technology to help you measure improvements.
This a 'Webcast on Demand' meaning that you can watch it at any point during the broadcast, which lasts for 24 hours; you can rewind, pause or fast forward; watch it all in one go, or split it up as suits you.
