GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

Stress Management Techniques

This intermediate-advanced level course will give an overview of several brief stress reduction methods. First, it will include a discussion of the basic physiology of the stress response. Then, it will focus on techniques that therapists can teach their clients in a relatively brief time frame, including several innovative mind/body techniques to reduce psychophysiological arousal, as well as Cognitive Behavioral techniques to modify attitudes and reactions to stressors. As an added benefit, when you sign up for this course, you will receive complimentary supplemental material to use with your clients.

The course is comprised of four articles. The first article reviews the basic physiology of the stress response. The second article includes a detailed discussion and literature review of various kinds of meditation techniques. The third article discusses several treatment options for addressing stress management. The fourth article provides updates on the latest research and innovative tools in stress management. Additional resources and references are provided for further study, but they are not part of the course.
