ACTIVE RELAXATION TRAINING FOR FATIGUE AND STRESS MANAGEMENT
An approach to developing health

COURSE LOCATION: Webcast at Home/Office
Date: 05/10/2020



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'.

Seeman et al (1997) & Hocking et al (1997)


'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'.

Olivier de Ladoucette (2005)
