Young People’s Stress Management Workshop

The aim of the course is to empower young people to understand stress and its effects on their bodies. Through a heightened awareness of what is going on in their minds and bodies during times of stress, they will learn how to manage their stress better. The course will teach the youth to use a whole tool box of tools each of which has been scientifically proven to work. They will leave the course more aware and armed with knowledge. Instead of being the victims of stress they will become the masters of their own minds.

The course will begin with an introduction which includes anatomy, physiology and neuroanatomy as well as neuroscience. This will be followed by an experiential section in which they will experience simulated stressors and learn to be the observer of their own responses. They will use these simulated opportunities to try out using their tools and not using their tools. They will be alerted to the difference between being equipped and taking charge and not.

The course will be very interactive and is best suited to young adults from 17-20. Each will engage at their own level of understanding.

The outcome:

Heightened self-awareness and a greater level of consciousness.

Youth who can manage themselves in times of stress.
