Welcome to this online Stress Awareness module. This module is designed to give you an overview of stress awareness at work. The module explains what stress is and how it is expressed physically and psychologically. We identify potential causes of stress to yourself and to colleagues, explain how to minimise feelings of stress before it becomes a serious problem and offer some short-term coping strategies for dealing with stress as well as longer-term solutions. In section six we offer some links to further information on dealing with work-related stress.
