Programs - SUCCESSFULLY MANAGING THE STRESS OF CHANGE

This program will transform the quality of the rest of your life. Most stress management seminars teach participants stuff they already know and are not doing! People only end up feeling more guilty and more stressed. In this training participants practice practical, common-sense techniques based on decades of intensive research. They learn how they contribute to their own stresses in the first place, and exactly how they can move through it - faster.

They are taught how to recognize the symptoms of stress, and to turn their habitually automatic stress reactions into the pro-active Stress Management Response©. Physical, emotional, and mental stress are examined. Step by step processes are followed to transform worries into positive action steps, to master emotional reactions, to build a positive habit, and to be clear and calm even in difficult situations.

Resources online include a powerful self scoring instrument, the Coping And Stress Profile©, RI's Pre Seminar Survey on the Stress of Change and a 70 minute audio presentation online by Dr. Pennington that overviews basic concepts that also includes his signature story of being shot in the center of his chest by an unknown assailant armed with a 38 caliber handgun.
