Stress Management for Today’s Policing

Reducing the Negative Impact of Stress

Course Introduction

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another” - William James

This Oxford Stress Management for Today’s Policing training course will equip the participants with skills to manage stress and pressure. It will also help the participants to master the techniques and practical methods to reduce stress at work and in their lives. The participants will learn how to manage body, mind & spirit effectively so that they can overcome work-related stress and perform their duties.

Stress is a normal reaction to changes in our life and surroundings; therefore, we cannot avoid stress from time to time. Some of this stress can be beneficial to improve our performance, and this will cause us little long-term problems. However, continued pressure and stress will, over time, create major health issues. Consequently, our response should not be to reduce good stress, but those areas of excessive and harmful stress in our lives. So, the question is, how many days a year do you lose through stress?

Stress is one of the main reasons for absenteeism in the workplace. This will allow the participants to manage stress and pressure in their work and home life and will help to master techniques and practical methods to reduce stress at work and in their colleagues.
