Living Well with Stress - HP190

Workplace stress can be triggered by many sources: heavy workloads with tight timelines, layoffs or restructurings, or difficult co-workers. When combined with the pressures and responsibilities outside of work, it is no wonder that many of us experience high levels of stress in daily routines.

Left unaddressed, stress can lead to absenteeism and has the potential to turn into a major mental or physical health concern. This session will teach participants how to effectively manage stress for optimal health, wellbeing, and workplace productivity.

The facilitator of the session will be provided by UBC's Employee and Family Assistance Program provider, Shepell. This free workshop is available to all UBC staff and faculty.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Define stress and the fight or flight response;
  • Identify personal stressors and symptoms; and
  • Develop strategies to increase personal resiliency.
