This experiential and practice based one-day workshop provides a sound framework for managers responsible for staff who are at risk from varying levels of stress. This module has been specially designed to help them understand and recognise the early signs of stress in their staff and the steps to take to reduce the negative impact. It also covers the statutory obligations towards staff, how to protect them, avoid burn-out and stress management techniques for the managers themselves. The session contains tools to help managers respond appropriately to signs of stress in staff.
