Stress at Christmas Workshop
7 December @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm GMT
This introductory session is aimed at people who are experiencing increased levels of stress, particularly around Christmas time and who want to understand and learn ways of managing this feeling using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). We recommend attending the full session to gain the maximum benefit from this treatment.
Christmas can be a stressful time for many people and that stress can sometimes become overwhelming and affect our mood. This taught course aims to give individuals some tools and techniques to manage this stressful period and beyond.
Topics covered include:
- Using CBT to understand how our thoughts, behaviours, physical sensations and emotions all interlink and effect each other
- Identifying potential triggers and causes of stress
- Introducing techniques to manage our stress levels
- Managing the expectations we set ourselves and others
This is a taught course designed to introduce practical strategies to manage your mood, run in a group format, so although there will be some group discussion about the techniques and examples it is up to you how much or how little you choose to take part. We recommend attending the whole session to fully benefit, please discuss with the course facilitators if you have any concerns or see the course FAQ’s on our website.
- Please note: You must be booked onto a course to attend. You are welcome to bring a friend or relative for support, but they must also be booked onto the course due to limited spaces.
