Working with Stress and Supporting Yourself

Consultant: Jennifer Oborne Crolly

Every individual experiences stress. While it can be a healthy motivator that sparks action, too much stress can wear upon our vitality and wellness.  Jennifer offers two workshops to support staff in understanding stress, and provides a range of self management strategies that address all parts of the Self; body, mind, emotions and spirit.

 Working with Stress and Supporting Yourself – Part 1: Understanding Stress, the Body-Mind Connection, and Being All You Can Be

This workshop looks at:

  • the stress response
  • identifying personal stressors and their presence in the body
  • the physical costs of worry, revisiting, regret and reactivity
  • the role of beliefs in what we experience as stressors
  • holistic strategies for tending to the Self

Working with Stress and Supporting Yourself – Part 2: Working with Reactivity and Being Empowered when Others Affect You

This workshop builds on Part 1, addressing emotional reactivity, and offering a tangible process to neutralize escalated emotions towards another person and discovering what they have to teach.
