Managing Work-Related Stress by Robert Lawrence Friedman, MA from Robert Friedman on Vimeo.

Managing Work-Related Stress is a comprehensive stress management workshop that uses a three-tiered approach in which education, self-discovery, and experiential exercises help employees take a proactive role in the area of stress reduction. Employees are educated as to the latest research on the causes and solutions of stress; questionnaires provide a benchmark of employees’ stress levels and their current coping mechanisms; and numerous opportunities are provided to practice stress management techniques in class, at work and at home to reinforce a positive lifestyle change.
