This one day program is designed to give participants an opportunity to experience a variety of ways to handle stress. The program will look at how each of us views stressful events and the effect our perceptions have on our well being. Also included in the program will be an opportunity to explore some physical stress management techniques such as guided imagery, relaxation exercises, Tai Chi and others. Exercise and the benefits of it will be discussed.

Participants are asked to wear clothing that is comfortable, as we will be practicing techniques which will involve movement. DHHS employees, please bring a change of clothing so you will be in compliance with the office attire policy if you are returning to your work site after the program.
