According to the Labour Force Survey in the UK (HSE report statistics report, November 2020), stress, depression and anxiety contributed to over 50% of all work-related illnesses in 2019-20, resulting in the loss of 17.9 million working days. Dealing with stress, uncertainty and turbulence can therefore improve individual and team wellbeing for all within the technical workforce, who work to enable teaching, learning, and research and enterprise activities in higher education and research industries. 

This course concentrates on what technicians can do to manage stress. It explores how they can increase their capacity to recover and bounce back from workplace setbacks and crises, and in so doing, build resilience to overcome stress and challenges in the technical services environment. It will focus on simple and practical processes to enable participants to effectively deal with stress for a positive impact on themselves and everyone around them.
